Arts Roundup: ‘I Am Sick of Arts Roundup’s Fat Fucking Face’ Edition

Next month's Done&Done Festival has a lineup, the organizers announced. The two-weekend event, which will "celebrate the continuing ascent of NY and DC’s underground music scenes," includes six D.C. bands (Exactly, Last Tide, Laughing Man, Loose Lips, Ra Ra Rasputin, and Rosy Likes Red) and six from New York, including one D.C. ex-pat, Byrds of Paradise. The D.C. show is April 10 at the All Souls Unitarian Church; New York date is TBA.

Area R&B crooner Raheem DeVaughn's new album, The Love and War MasterPeace is out today; we'll have a review from Ben Westhoff in this week's Washington City Paper, and online tomorrow. Till then: The go-go remix of "Bulletproof" featuring TCB is some next-level stuff.

The Pink Line Project shot some video at the massive "G-40: The Summit" exhibition at Art Whino:

After the jump: A certain film critic's fat fucking face, a bitter Munch exhibit, Dan Bejar!

If you haven't read Chris Jones' wonderful Esquire profile of Roger Ebertdo that now. Then read Ebert's response. Then read Will Leitch's piece about his friendship with Ebert, and why he once wrote a piece called "I Am Sick Of Roger Ebert's Fat F—-ing Face." And then watch Ebert on Oprah today.

TV corner! Dustin Hoffman will star in "Luck," a new HBO series. Leno returned to the Tonight Show last night.

A new Edvard Munch retrospective in Paris couldn't get its hands on "The Scream"; the art space, Pinacotheque de Paris, then decided to name the show "Edvard Munch or Anti-Scream." "Privately financed and unashamedly commercial, it’s snubbed by Paris’s curatorial establishment — an attitude Marc Restellini, its director and driving force, reciprocates," writes Bloomberg's Jorg von Uthmann.

Song of the day! Loscil's "The Making of Grief Point," a 9-minute ambient work featuring spoken word from Destroyer's Dan Bejar. Start your day off confused!:
