Friday 14th Feb
I already told you about Sucker for Love, Speakeasy DC's annual Valentine's Day spectacular at the 9:30 Club. I'm performing in the 7pm show which is sold out, but there's still tickets for the 10pm show here.
But if I wasn't going to that, I'd be tempted to head to Artisphere for a showing of Amelie, the most charming romantic French film in my film-viewing memory (I do also love Populaire - but more for the speedtyping than the romance). Romance in Rosslyn, tonight at 8pm. Hard to resist... Details here.
Saturday 15th Feb
I love when DC goes all quirky and thinks it's London. I don't really get exactly what Quiet Cabaret is but it's just the sort of quirky event I used to go to in London. If I wasn't off to a dinner party, I couldn't resist.
And if I were the sort of girl who could prop her eyes open sufficiently for a midnight movie, Landmark E Street Cinema is showing Harold and Maude! A very offbeat, cult romantic comedy, from 1972, this is one of my favorite films ever. The last time I saw it on a big screen, I was 18. Which was the same sort of time I was a huge Rocky Horror fan - which, coincidentally, is on at the same time in the same place, with live shadow cast the Sonic Transducers. In fact both of these are on Friday AND Saturday at midnight. No matter your quirky midnight movie persuasion, you are spoilt for choice at the Landmark E Street Cinema this weekend, ladies and gentlemen. (and if you don't fancy late night movies, the Oscar animated and non-animated shorts are on all through the day - I loved the animated ones last year).
Sunday 16th Feb
I already told you about Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company annual intern benefit and show for the bargain price of $20 including a drink. Tickets and details here.
