June 3 & 4
DKMC Walk Weekend
This weekend, museums that normally charge admission will fling open their doors to denizens used to getting into museums for free. For the Dupont-Kalorama Museums Consortium’s event, three sites — the Phillips Collection, President Woodrow Wilson House and Dumbarton House — will have open access. (The regularly free Anderson House and National Museum of American Jewish Military History are also participating.) Dumbarton, which is reopening after months of extensive renovations, also kicks off its new exhibit “The Exchange,” featuring an original printing of the Articles of Confederation and a second edition of the Federalist Papers.
Various locations, Sat. & Sun., 11 a.m.-4 p.m., free.
‘Glitch: An Exploration of Digital Media’
Curator Adriel Luis will lead a discussion with some of the artists behind this strange, interactive gallery show (which opened in late May and runs through July 9). Among the panelists: Sasha de Koninck, an artist from California who created an intricate weaving that, when scanned with a tablet computer, plays music.
Torpedo Factory Art Center, 105 N. Union St., Alexandria; June 8, 7 p.m., free.

Bard in the Park film series
Over the last three Wednesdays of the month, the Folger Shakespeare Library will screen three modern adaptations of the Bard’s work: “Romeo + Juliet” on June 14 (the good one with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes, not the newer one nobody saw); Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado About Nothing” on June 21; and teen comedy “10 Things I Hate About You” (a riff on “The Taming of the Shrew”) on June 28.
Canal Park at Capitol Riverfront, 200 M St. SE; June 14, 21 & 28, 6:30 p.m., free.
Fans of HBO’s “Treme” may recognize BeauSoleil, a group of musicians who appeared on the show and are widely credited with leading the current Cajun music renaissance. For this show, four members of the two-time Grammy-winning band — led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Michael Doucet, right — will perform as a quartet and cook up a musical gumbo.
