ToDo ToDay: Kingsley Flood, Patton Oswalt, and a Tribute to Emmylou Harris

Comedians get serious, metal mixes with mariachi, and a dozen musicians pay tribute to Emmylou Harris.

ToDo ToDay: Afternoon of a Faun, Crocodiles, and Whiskey

The story sounds straight out of a Lifetime movie: A stunning young dancer—the muse of her partner and choreographer—is stricken by a grave illness and doesn’t know if she’ll ever walk again, let alone dance. To do so, she must overcome all odds. And of course, the woman in question is gorgeous. So go see Afternoon of [...]

ToDo ToDay: Teatime Jamboree! Pig Destroyer Beer! Questlove!

Nothing screams spring like a country hoedown, and that’s exactly what the gang from D.C. podcast and live talk show You, Me, Them, Everybody has planned for its takeover of the Mansion at Strathmore. In addition to comedy, the group is also planning an Easter egg hunt, a series of craft activities led by Morgan Hungerford [...]
