Plan your weekend: Music with a twist

Every week we gather a list of the best events for the weekend, This weekend’s lineup includes several unconventional shows for music lovers. Here are some things we’re excited about:

First is the Friday screening of “Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone,” a documentary chronicling the L.A. band that successfully blended ska, metal, soul and funk. It’s followed by a Q&A with the band and a performance. You can’t show up to the venue without a ticket, so head to the Lincoln Theatre box office to pick one up.

Dean & Britta perform Saturday at the National Gallery of Art in conjunction with the exhibit “Warhol: Headlines.” They’ll be playing “13 Most Beautiful: Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests” against a backdrop of silent screen tests shot by the pop artist. The whole thing is very reminiscent to Warhol’s Factory days, when proto-punk band the Velvet Underground would play to a who’s who of the New York art scene.

Hemphill Fine Arts opens an exhibit of encaustics (or pigmented-wax works) by Robin Rose, a former member of the seminal Washington art-rock band Urban Verbs. Each piece is named after and inspired by a song from one of her musical heros.

See more of our picks on our list of the Best events this weekend.
