The Big Gig and other news

TRES CHICAS:
This Friday Night, head on up to IOTA (as sorta seen on The West Wing) for the alt-country stylings of Tres Chicas--a supergroup of roots-rock chanteuses, featuring Lynn Blakey (Glory Fountain), Caitlin Cary (Whiskeytown), and Tonya Lamm (Hazeldine). Did you hear them on NPR? Yes you did! Now git!

GARDEN STATE:
Zach Braff is taking over the entire fucking world. And that's a good thing. So, this weekend, cement your devotion to our future cultural imam by taking in a screening of his movie Garden State, which he has growed up all by his little ol' self. See it at Loews in G-Town, Loews in Shirlington, or the Landmark on E Street. And for God's sake, Fandango that bitch! You wanna wait in line like a plebe?

THE GLASS MENDACITY:
Those snarky and urbane kids from the Landless Theatre Company hitch their wagon to the unsuspecting backside of the KenCen's Festival of Tennessee Williamsness with this Chicago born-and-bred parody of Williams' best known play. Opening this weekend at the DCAC (which we lovingly refer to as "The Dee-Kack") in Adams Morgan. Allow three hours to find a parking space.

In Other News:

August is upon us, and with that, we come to the traditional time The DCeiver likes to get the hell outta the Swamp for a little of the R&R. Next weekend, we retreat from the urban grid altogether, heading out for a quiet weekend of boating, grilling and beer at peaceful Lake Anna. If this town really does blow up in a heated terror attack, trust us--we won't even fucking know about it.

Then, the following week, The DCeiver heads up to Manhattan, beginning Tuesday Night with the ceremonial burnt offerings to the Gods of EZPass. After a brief stop in the paradise known as Northern New Jersey, we head into NYC for dining, quaffing, and the finest night-life the 5 boroughs have to offer. Just for kicks, we will be participating in the latest trendy activity that's all the rage in NYC--not going to Pianos.

Still unresolved is whether or not The DCeiver will be posting regularly from NYC or if that responsibility will be left in the hands of a special guest blogger. But, rest assured, we shall resolve these matters. In the meantime, we?ve given you some fun, life-enriching activities to engage in this weekend--fucking go do 'em!
