Calling All Enthusiasts!

SPOTTISWOODE AND HIS ENEMIES
If you're a fan of moody, dark rock, or just like to carry around your Field Guide To the Seven Hundred Bands Kevin Cordt Plays Trumpet In and are looking to cross one off, come out to the Velvet Lounge and peep one of The Deceiver's favorites, Spottiswoode and His Enemies in their first DC show of the year. With Preston Clarke, 9:30pm.

THE ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF AN ANARCHIST
The only thing we love more than Pho, is Fo. Dario Fo. And his po-mo po co's. So go. To the Casa Del Pueblo, that is, to see Rorschach Theatre's production of Fo's best-known work, The Accidental Death of an Anarchist. Director Grady Weatherford channels his unbridled energy into this hilarious farce about terrorism, totalitarianism, and the incompetence of your political leaders. You'll laugh and laugh until you walk outside and realize that this shit isn't funny anymore. Then you'll go buy Moral Politics by George Lakoff and turn off your fucking television.

TEN THOUSAND VILLAGES 10th ANNIVERSARY
Alexandria's Ten Thousand Villages, on paper, looks like the same old multi-culti thrift that cruchy liberals have been flocking to for time immemoriam. But take another look this weekend at their 10th Anniversary Block Party and discover gorgeous artisanship, unique gifts and art, and an informative connection to the world around you. The block party will feature live music, dancing, and a big show and sale of newly arrived crafts and artwork. Plus, the whole shebang is Fair Trade approved, so you won't run the risk of the lead singer of Coldplay gettin' all up in your grill. Saturday, beginning at 11 am, 824 King Street in Alexandria.
