You’re more than likely familiar with our weekend guide, but there’s still a lot to mark down on ye olde calendrier during the weekdays. Hence this pocket guide! We’ll cover everything from tunes to books to art to…you name it, basically; if it’s virtual, and good, we’re gonna talk about it:

Monday August 24th

Tuesday August 25th

Wednesday August 26th

  • Two solid virtual events from Phillips Collection today! First up, tune into weekly guided meditation at 12:45pm ET, and later, join them for a conversation between pianist and composer, Aaron Diehl, and Director of Music at the Phillips, Jeremy Ney at 5:30pm ET.
  • You can also swing by Hirshhorn’s weekly free artist talks at 2pm ET, this time ft. artist Doug Aitken as he joins Hirshhorn curator-at-large Gianni Jetzer for an exploration into his genre defying practice that reimagines participation in art.
  • Speaking of 2pm ET, you can also tune into part two of the UEFA Women’s Championship League ft. PSG against Lyon. My feeling is that Lyon will (as usual) win out, but also I don’t like either side, so…¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
  • Or if it’s tunes you’re after, head to Folk Medicine’s live-streamed fundraiser for the people of the Amazon; performances to come from Holly Miranda, John Medeski and more. Starts at 7pm ET.
  • Meanwhile, WOMEN Take The Stage is happening at 9pm ET and will feature performances and stories from Gloria Steinem, Billie Jean King, Indigo Girls, The Chicks, Alicia Garza, Judy Gold and more.
  • Shamir will also be performing via KEXP’s YouTube channel starting at 6pm ET.
  • More into books? Jill Filipovic will be in conversation about OK Boomer, Let’s Talk with Anand Giridharadas via Strand Bookstore live stream starting at 7pm ET.
  • Or if you like drinking games, play Drunk Futurists (like Drunk History meets Cards Against Humanity but FUTURISTIC) at 8pm ET via Zoom and/or FB Live; it’s a fundraiser for Resilience 2032, which we told you all about here.

Thursday August 27th

  • Starting in tunes territory, Widowspeak will be doing a live-streamed performance at 9pm ET.
  • Plus Nick Hakim will take to KEXP’s YouTube channel at 6pm ET, while Lil Uzi Vert will do a virtual show for Live Nation at 6pm ET for $15.
  • If you’re more interested in conversations, Sasha Bruce Youthwork will host a virtual discussion to reflect on the life of Representative John Lewis, and how youth can leverage their voice and power to fulfill his legacy. Starts at 7:30pm ET.
  • There’s also a new round of Phillips Collection’s virtual book club; this go-round they’ll be discussing Make Your Home Among Strangers by Jennine Capó Crucet.
  • More into culinary vibes? Brooklyn Brainery will tell you all about how to make kimchi starting at 7pm ET; tickets are $15.
