Write on the Walls

The Fridge, 516 ½ Eighth St. SE; through July 28. Free.
Here, There, Everywhere
Artist Peter Coffin specializes in whimsical works, including custom UFOs, which he zoomed over Rio and Poland. “Peter Coffin: Here & There” presents a variety of his pieces — check out an installation of scavenged blue items (one is a Toyota), which mimics the nesting ritual of the male bowerbird. Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Independence Avenue and Seventh Street SW; through Oct. 6. Free.
Atlanta-based rockers The Wild have a good ol’ indie-punk-hoedown thing going. The five-piece is loose in the best way — not sloppy, but like they had definitely been partying before hitting “record” for their latest disc, “Dreams are Maps.” They’ve got a little bit of the Replacements in their sound, and even a little bit of the Pogues. 8 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW. $10.
