Chaotic Beauty
Photographer Roger Ballen’s work is heavy on posed, cinematic scenes with compelling background line drawings. The new show of his work, “Lines, Marks, and Drawings: Through the Lens of Roger Ballen” concentrates on those elements of his 40-year career (which includes directing a video for South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord). Through Feb. 9 at the National Museum of African Art.

The Power of Second Sight
D.C. embraced Curtis Sittenfeld when she performed a sidelong tackle of Laura Bush with her fictional-but-not-entirely book “American Wife.” Her latest, “Sisterland,” is a more mystical turn: Two sisters, both psychic, struggle with their gifts. One decides to give in to her powers of prediction; the other decides to deny them. 7 p.m. at Politics and Prose.

Nancy Wilson, Barracuda
You have not lived until you’ve heard the 45-second acoustic intro to Heart’s “Crazy On You” blast into a beast of a song with the summer wind in your hair. The band, led by Nancy Wilson, is on their 14th album now and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a few months ago. 8 p.m. at Jiffy Lube Live. Sold out.
