We look at some of the best events coming up this weekend, including costume contests, classic Hollywood films, performances of Stephen Sondheim’s first musical and then some.

Get the story behind the Jimmies, a band that appeals to kids with upbeat hooks, bright vocals and “razzle-dazzle.”

Also, find record reviews of singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata, zydeco favorite Jeffery Broussard, indie rockers Crooked Fingers, guitar specialist Glenn Jones and guitar ensemble Tone.

Eat lunch at a legend. Justin Rude rounds up some of the most iconic eating establishments in town.

See sculptures by Evan Reed that evoke the familiarity of architecture in the new exhibit “Until Every Shape Has Found Its City” at the Greater Reston Arts Center.

And get all the latest reviews on new movies, including the psychological thriller “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and the “Shrek” spinoff “Puss in Boots.”
