Monday

DC Brau’s new premiere

Boundary Stone hosts the world premiere of a truly local beer: DC Brau’s rich Penn Quarter Porter aged for six months in barrels that once held Catoctin Creek whiskey.

Thursday

The Dude Fest abides

“The Big Lebowski” has little in common with “The Rocky Horror Picture show,” save for a cult fanbase that occasionally dresses in costume for screenings. The annual Dude Fest is your best chance to wear a bathrobe to the movies.

Friday

This is a comedian

Demetri Martin comes to town to present his usual variety of non sequiturs, observations and smart silliness.

Friday-Saturday

Light Moves

Choreographer Margaret Jenkins unveils a new piece called “Light Moves” with media artist Naomie Kremer, composer Paul Dresher, poet Michael Palmer and live music by the Paul Dresher Ensemble.
