Through Sunday. Daily admission $35-$45; three-day weekend pass $75.
Excellent Adventure at National Geographic: National Geographic and local party experts Brightest Young Things are once again teaming up for a night of science, exploration and getting down at National Geographic headquarters. The main draw is a chance to hear a series of short but fascinating talks from scientists and researchers who've fanned out around the globe to search for Genghis Khan's tomb and excavate caves where Neanderthals might have lived. But there's also after-hours access to the National Geographic Museum; music by '80s cover band Herr Metal; DJ sets by Oddisee and the Axel F crew; and multiple bars and food trucks to check out while wandering around. 8 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. $30 in advance.
Lizzo at 9:30 Club: Adept at rapping and singing, Lizzo is a performer to watch. Her upbeat breakout single “Good as Hell,” an ode to female confidence, was featured on the soundtrack of the 2016 film “Barbershop: The Next Cut.” Her EP, “Coconut Oil,” dropped in October to positive reviews, and she recently signed a major-label deal with Atlantic Records. 8 p.m. $20.
