ToDo ToDay: “India Song” at Adamson Gallery
The Adamson Gallery has been on something of an animal kick recently: First it hosted a group show of animal photographs titled “Wild Things,” and now it’s showing “India Song,” a series of photographic works by London-based artist Karen Knorr that features animals making themselves at home in historic palaces and holy spaces in India. Or at least the animals look like they’re making themselves at home; in reality, the monkeys, tigers, peacocks, and other native fauna are photographed separately, then digitally inserted into the image by the artist.

“India Song” is on view 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays to Fridays and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays to Oct. 27 at Adamson Gallery, 1515 14th St. NW. Free.adamsongallery.org. (202) 232-0707.
It's fried chicken and donuts night at Seasonal Pantry. Stop by the Shaw spot at 4 p.m. for the last night for the special. The market/restaurant has 100 orders of chicken, but if you don't have time to line up, you can reserve the chicken starting at 4:15 p.m. by calling (202) 713-9866. Chef Dan O'Brien will appear on the next season of Top Chef (premiering Nov. 7), so stop by before the already-popular place gets too popular. Seasonal Pantry, 1314 9th St. NW; seasonalpantry.com.

OH AND ALSO
From 1990 to 2009, Laetitia Sadier warbled sweetly or drolly recited French and English lyrics for Stereolab, a Brit-based band known for its crate-digging blend of easy listening, krautrock, French yé-yé pop, samba, and jazz. On Silencio, Sadier’s second album under her own name, she makes use of the same influences in a quieter manner. MORE >> (Steve Kiviat)
Sadier performs at 8 p.m. at DC9, 1940 9th St. NW. $14.
