TOP 5 FOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9
EVERYDAY IS HALLOWEEN PICK
1. Paranormal Behavior: Stories About Hauntings, Clairvoyance and Alien Abductions at Town Boutique
SpeakeasyDC presents this season appropriate evening of tales of the absurd. Amy Saidman and Co. have been at this a while and present a quality product. 8 p.m., 21+, $15
2. Menomena At Black Cat
The drums. Go for their drums. 8 p.m., all ages, $15
3. Yeveto At Millennium Stage
This instrumental band from Baltimore plays the type of music you'd want to hear in a foreign film set in the fall. Dramatic, wistful but not too heavy handed. This is the type of show the Millennium Stage excels in, relatively unknown acts presenting a quality project. 6 p.m., all ages, no cover
4. Wizards Season Tip-Off And Open Practice At Patriot Center
Wale is schedule to perform. It's free. Why not? 6:30 p.m., all ages, no cover
5. The Wiggles At Warner Theatre
The biggest kids band in the world is in the District for two shows. It's also the last tour for Anthony, Murray, Jeff and Greg. We're not sure what that means but it's probably very important in The Wiggles legacy. 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., all ages, $17.50 to $82
TOP 5 FOR THE NEXT 5 DAYS
Wednesday, October 10
Clarice Smith Distinguished Lecture with Adam Gopnik at Smithsonian American Art Museum
This lecture will explore the idea of American art. What makes a piece of work American? Does it matter?
Thursday, October 11
Calexico at 9:30
If this group wasn't so popular they'd be considered world music.
Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13
The French Underground at Embassy of France
This Brightest Young Things two-night event will feature all the BYT bells and whistles that make their parties successes. This French Embassy party follows their successful Spanish Embassy party. Embassy parties are fun. If you get bored of the band or DJ or bar, wander around. You're in an embassy.
Sunday, October 14
Motion Lines, The Mean Season at SOVA
Two good local bands for free at a good local coffee shop. For fans of mid 1990's power pop. Think Cheap Trick with less testosterone.
