Monday’s top stops: Rolling Stones, a tequila seminar and Steve Martin

June 24, 2013

Still Rolling
It’s cliche to say, but somehow, the Rolling Stones keep on rolling. More than 50 years after the band formed, Mick Jagger continues to defy the laws of aging and Keith Richards can still play the guitar. Tonight’s show ends the American leg of the “50 and Counting Tour,” which has featured special guests including Brad Paisley and Katy Perry. 8 p.m. at Verizon Center, 601 F St. NW. $150-$600.

Spirited Away
You missed the first week of Oyamel’s tequila festival (unless you didn't; sorry about your headache!), but you can catch the second week! Tonight, Wednesday and Thursday, the restaurant will host mezcal and tequila tastings, with experts to explain exactly what you’re tasting and how to pair the smoky spirits. Call the restaurant for reservations to make sure you get a spot. Through June 30 at Oyamel, 401 7th St. NW. $10 tasting seminars.

Strings Attached
Yes, Steve Martin is a comedian. But his interest in bluegrass banjo isn't a passing vanity project — he’s been playing since he was 17, and he tells jokes while he strums! He’ll be playing alongside bluegrass band the Steep Canyon Rangers and with folk-rock singer Edie Brickell. 8 p.m. at Wolf Trap, Filene Center, 1551 Trap Road, Vienna. Sold out.
