“The King and I” at the Kennedy Center: Lincoln Center Theater won the Tony Award for best musical revival for this production, now on tour and directed as it was on Broadway by Bartlett Sher. Even with Rodgers and Hammerstein oversaturating Washington of late — see “The Sound of Music” at the Kennedy Center and “A Grand Night for Singing” opening at NextStop Theatre Company on July 20 — such songs as “Getting to Know You” and “Hello, Young Lovers” stay in your bones for life. Through Aug. 20. $49-$159.
Bethesda Outdoor Movies: Most local outdoor film series are weekly events. Not in Bethesda, where the city's annual summer movie series takes place over five consecutive nights in the Woodmont Triangle. “The Wizard of Oz” is the first film on the agenda; other selections include “Hidden Figures” (Friday) and “La La Land” (Saturday). A limited number of lawn chairs are provided, and you're welcome to bring your own. 9 p.m. Free.
Johann is a Dirty Juice Boy at Archipelago: Herndon's Aslin Beer Company makes fruity, hazy double IPAs that are some of the most sought-after beers in the region. While the brewery rarely distributes its beers in Washington, they'll have three offerings during a special happy hour at the Archipelago tiki bar on U Street. Look for “Living to Get Radical,” a double IPA with toasted coconut; “Berliner Weisse” brewed with passion fruit and mango; and “Gose” with apricots. Archipelago's bartenders will be slinging the beers individually or incorporated into special cocktails. 5 p.m. Free; beers priced individually.

Tim and Eric at the Lincoln Theatre: Ten years after “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” first appeared on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block — and seven years after the surreal, sometimes cringe-inducing comedy left the air — Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are back for the “Tim and Eric 10 Year Anniversary Awesome Tour,” which promises new sketches and songs, as well as some of the greatest hits. 6 p.m. $45.
Tales of the Oak at the Passenger: Burley Oak has become one of the most exciting breweries in Maryland. Four new beers were released over Independence Day weekend: "100,” a double IPA triple dry-hopped with Mosaic; “Coffee and Cream,” a cream ale made with the brewery's own cold brew coffee; and two fruited sour ales: “Apricot Raspberry J.R.E.A.M.” and “Blueberry Strawberry J.R.E.A.M.” Cans sold out within hours. However, the Passenger has scored kegs of all four beers, plus three other Burley Oak offerings, and will be tapping them at the bar's very first tap takeover. All beers will be sold on their own or used in an original cocktail. 5 p.m. Free; beers priced individually.

The Van Pelt at DC9: For indie-rock aficionados, reliving one decade keeps getting easier and easier. New bands continue to emulate obscure ’90s bands, while obscure ’90s bands keep reforming in hopes of reaching new ears. The Van Pelt, a jangling punk quartet that disappeared in 1997 after two poised albums, fall into the latter category. You can hear echoes of the Van Pelt in Parquet Courts and Explosions in the Sky, as well as a slew of emo-revivalists — and now, after a 20-year hiatus, you can hear the real thing, too. 8:30 p.m. $12.
Stretch and Bobbito at Blind Whino: From 1990 to 1998, DJs Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia hosted one of the most influential radio shows in the world. “The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show,” broadcast on Columbia University's WKCR-FM, introduced New Yorkers to the Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Nas and the Wu-Tang Clan, among other hip-hop legends-to-be. Earlier this year, Stretch and Bobbito — a.k.a. Adrian Bartos and Robert Garcia — announced they were reuniting for a new NPR podcast, dubbed “What's Good with Stretch & Bobbito.” To celebrate their return, the duo is hosting a party at Blind Whino in Southwest, where both will DJ and “surprises” are promised. 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. $10.
