Escape from the Hilltop: Hair, First Friday, and a punk flea market

We’re back after a crazy Halloween weekend with events that veer towards the artsy:

Let your Hair down

Hair, which opened last week at the Kennedy Center, has multiple performances through the weekend. The musical classic, which focuses on culture, sex—and of course—long hippie locks during the Summer of Love, is a show worth the trek.

In honor of the musical’s 1968 opening, second-tier seats are on sale via Brightest Young Things for $19.68. (The tickets normally cost more than $65.) To take advantage of the sale, check out BYT or order through this link.

First Friday

This Friday is the first of November, which means that Dupont Circle art galleries stay open until 8 p.m. Every First Friday features a surprise addition, ranging from wine tasting to free food samples, so gear up for the weekend with a relaxing dinner and gallery tour on Friday.

A rocked out garage sale

Buy or sell old clothes at a punk-themed flea market at St. Stephen’s Church, which is located at 1525 Newton Street NW. While you peruse the market’s selections, you’ll also be able to enjoy live performances by Imperial China, True Womanhoos, and Tereu Tereu.

The flea market opens this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. and requests a $3 donation.

Fotoweek beyond 36th Street

Fotoweek is not just a Georgetown Art Aficionados event—it’s happening all over the District.

Step off campus this Saturday and see how photographers captured “what it’s like to be young in D.C.” And because the gallery is located just down the road at 3333 M Street, there’s not excuse to skip the event!

  1. Seriously guys, go to the punk rock flea market. If only to see Imperial China, you should go. They are easily one of the best bands playing in DC right now.
