‘Song 1: A Happening’ and the weekend’s best events

This weekend, the artists are taking to the streets. We’ve rounded up our picks for the best events going on in D.C. this weekend, and three involve art outdoors.

“Song 1,” the light projection that bathes the Hirshhorn’s circular exterior, has been extended through May 20, but the real party comes Friday when noisy art-punks No Age, minimalist composer Nicolas Jaar, sound collagist Oneohtrix Point Never and beat-heavy duo High Places will provide the soundtrack to Doug Aitken’s moving images.

On Sunday Saturday, to wrap up the Kennedy Center’s “Look Both Ways: Street Arts Across America” festival, 25 performers take over Yards Park for a day-long program of eclectic artists and street performers.

And if all that has you feeling a little inspired, head to Dupont Circle for Dance in the Circle. At 3 p.m., several local dance companies will be performing their works and offering dance lessons. Then at 8 p.m., the whole thing evolves into a big dance party.
