‘Song 1’ extended until May 20; listen to bands performing at the Hirshhorn on Friday

One more week for “Song 1” at the Hirshhorn. (Ben de la Cruz/The Washington Post)
The Hirshhorn has extended its popular “Song 1” exhibition until May 20, meaning the outdoor grounds of the museum will be one of the city’s best after-dark destination spots for an extra week.

Even though this weekend isn’t the end for Doug Aitken’s ambitious projection project, Friday night is still shaping up as the highlight of its two-month run. The “Song 1 Happening” (detailed in Nightlife Agenda) is the museum’s latest after-hours event, and it features live performances from No Age, Oneohtrix Point Never, Nicolas Jaar, High Places and a DJ set by Animal Collective’s Geologist. (It’s not a “hip D.C. after-hours event” unless Geologist is spinning, don’t you know?)

Also from the archives: an interview with No Age; a live review of No Age at the Black Cat; an interview with Oneohtrix Point Never; and an album review of OPN’s excellent recent album, “Replica.”

If you’ve got four hours to kill on a Friday afternoon, the Hirshhorn announced a symposium for Friday afternoon, “Art in the Expanded Field,” which features New Yorker pop critic Sasha Frere-Jones, Los Angeles Times writer and Aitken collaborator Dean Kuipers and Cincinnati Art Museum director Aaron Betsky, among others.
