TOP 5 FOR MONDAY, JUNE 4

1. Danzig With Doyle At Fillmore Silver Spring
Mother! The shortest scary man in rock and roll visited Red Onion Records and Tapes yesterday. He bought some Parliament records. This makes him way more likable. 8 p.m., all ages, $29.50

2. "Melting Away" At DCJCC
The Breakthrough Performance winner at the 2011 Tel Aviv International LGBT Film Festival, this film is the first in the history of Israeli cinema to deal with a parents’ reaction to their transgendered child. This screening is part of Capital Pride. View our other Pride picks. 7 p.m., all ages, $11

3. DC Music Salon: Sonny Stitt At Watha T. Daniel-Shaw Library
Jazz saxophonist Sonny Stitt passed away in D.C. 30 years ago. His influence can still be heard today. A peer of Billy Eckstine, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, Sonny Rollins, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk and more, Stitt is an overlooked figure. Presented in conjunction with the DC Jazz Festival, this salon will give insight into the man and his music. 7 p.m., all ages, no cover

4. PAUL Opening At 1000 Connecticut Ave. NW
The first 1,000 to make a purchase at this bakery's new location will receive a free baguette or large macaroon. Free sugar and bread at the start of the month. 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., all ages, prices vary

5. "Sex and the City" At 1851 S. Bell St.
We haven't lost our minds, we just think tonight's weather is too perfect to pass up an outdoor movie. The Crystal Screen movie series begins their summer of romantic comedies. We're not sure how this film is romantic and we know it's not a comedy, yet it somehow still applies. View our summer outdoor movie picks. Sundown, all ages, no cover

TOP 5 FOR THE NEXT 5 DAYS

Tuesday, June 5
Story League at Arts Club of Washington
Story League events are usually held at Busboys and Poets, ticketed and tend to sell out. This special event is at a different venue, free and will features a "Best Of" collection of past performers. An excellent way to introduce yourself to D.C.'s story telling scene.

Wednesday, June 6
Burning Man for Beginners at Artomatic
This is fantastic for a many reasons. Or awful. We're not sure but it sounds informative, fun and gives us an excuse to check out Artomatic.

Thursday, June 7
Greg Proops at DC Improv
This "Smartest Man In The World" taping will be a lesson for comics and podcasters alike. Proops fills an hour plus of original material each week. He's the Satchel Paige of comedy podcasts. Though he may not be the most well known at the craft, his honesty, originality and fun can be heard in each episode.

Friday, June 8
Sri Lankan Supper Club at Montserrat House
A large variety of home made cuisine from S.H. Fernando Jr., author of "Rice & Curry: Sri Lankan Home Cooking." A very delicious thing one can do this Friday.

Saturday, June 9
Seersucker Social
The well dressed, somewhat athletic nostalgia fest of the year. Make sure to participate. Your photos from the event will come in hand for Facebook, Tumblr and OK Cupid use.
