ToDo ToDay: Washington Jewish Film Festival, Hopsin, and a New Rosslyn Alehouse

The Washington Jewish Film Festival opens tonight with two showings of Avi Nesher’s The Wonders. No, it bears no connection to The Wonders in That Thing You Do, but Nesher’s modern-day film noir still seems captivating: It follows a Jerusalem bartender who finds himself entangled in a mystery in his apartment building that lands him deep in [...]

Virgin Mobile FreeFest: Robin #Thicke, Everybody (Plus Vampire Weekend, Icona Pop, Washed Out, and More)

Photos: Alicia Keys @ Verizon Center

There was no Stephen Colbert cameo during Alicia Keys' set last night at the Verizon Center, but there was still some additional star power in the house. This was yet another phone-booth event attended by members of the Obama family, in this case the First Lady and the Obama daughters. There was quite a stir [...]
