March 2: Talk of the Hill with Bill Press: David Fahrenthold
In the latest in Bill Press’ regular conversations with media figures, the journalist and author sits down with Washington Post political reporter David Fahrenthold. It’s your chance to see Fahrenthold before the almost certain HBO movie about his investigation into the Donald J. Trump Foundation makes him more famous. Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital, 921 Pennsylvania Ave.; Thu., 6:30-8 p.m., free but sold out.
March 5: Nowruz: A Persian New Year Celebration
The Sackler’s ninth annual celebration of the Persian New Year offers a plethora of family-friendly fun. The lineup includes concerts, screenings of the animated film “Window Horses” and traditional Persian tales by storyteller Xanthe Gresham (one performance has ASL interpretation, new this year). Kids can also make puppets and collages, and learn calligraphy and backgammon. Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, 1050 Independence Ave. SW; Sun., 11 a.m.-5 p.m., free.
March 7: Landlady
Adam Schatz is involved in many musical projects, but right now he’s focused on Landlady, his ever-evolving band that just released a new album, “The World Is a Loud Place.” A mix of brainy indie rock, offbeat rhythms, jazzy interludes and hooky choruses, Landlady’s new tunes should sound fitting in the cultural melting pot of the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. Kennedy Center, 2700 F St. NW; Tue., 6 p.m., free.
March 14-26: Environmental Film Festival
Green your screens with the 25th anniversary of this festival that celebrates and examines the role of environmentalism in cinema. While some of the showings do cost cash, most of them are free (though registration is often required). The lineup includes Alex Gibney’s documentary “Water & Power: A California Heist,” which had its premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival; “Flint,” a work-in-progress about the water crisis in that Michigan town; and a series from DC-based filmmakers, including “Tidewater,” about sea level rise in Hampton Roads, Va.
March 9: OnStage Korea Showcase
Modern dance aficionados, maybe ditch those “So You Think You Can Dance” reruns this time around. The Korea National Contemporary Dance Company is performing the U.S. premiere of “Immixture,” which showcases the delicate and beautiful movements of traditional Korean dance. The program was most recently seen in Paris and Spain — ooh la la! Arena Stage, 1101 Sixth St. SW; March 9, 7 p.m., free with RSVP.
March 9: The Facebook Monologues
Hosts Dee Ahmed and Max Wolfson will interrogate fellow D.C. comedians Mindi Mimosa, Kasha Patel, Kandyce August, Kevin Skiffington, Petey Steele and Tim Middleton about questionable social media posts and dramatize online arguments from their pasts. Drafthouse Comedy, 1100 13th St. NW; March 9, 9 p.m., free.
March 11: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon 2017
You can finally put your Wikipedia editing abilities to better use than just making the world believe you’re married to Idris Elba. Bring your laptop and power cord to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and join a team beefing up Wikipedia articles about notable female artists and patrons. And if your Wikipedia experience only extends to remembering who played that guy in that one movie, the museum hosts an editing tutorial beforehand. National Museum of Women in the Arts, 1250 New York Ave. NW; March 11, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., free.
March 24-26: Maryland Day Celebration
The Old Line State, with its schizophrenic flag and hummable state song (it’s the same tune as “O Christmas Tree”), gets its due with this Anne Arundel County celebration featuring free tours, admission to historic sites and nature hikes. There are also plenty of things with a $1 admission (some require registration in advance).
March 27: Wings and Song: Bird-watching and Music
Go for an easy hike in Rock Creek Park and listen to warblers with naturalist Dave Sutherland, who will also play classical music excerpts that were inspired by birdsong (on portable speakers). This and other free events are part of the Kennedy Center and Washington Performing Arts’ “Shift” orchestra festival. Register for one of two free walks. Rock Creek Park Nature Center, 5200 Glover Road NW; March 27, 3:30 & 5 p.m., free.
March 29: Inaugural McGowan Forum on Ethics in Leadership: Ethics in Journalism
In case you really haven’t had enough fake news (and really, who has? Ha, ha), the McGowan Forum on Ethics is hosting a panel of journalists — and the founder of Craigslist — to talk about ethical responsibilities of leaders and journalists and how misinformation is impacting the country. The free event is sold out, but is still accepting waitlist registrants. National Archives, 700 Pennsylvania Ave. NW; March 29, 7 p.m., free but sold out.
