Remix Your Weekend: Ground Control to Major Tom
“You lack the season of all natures, sleep.” If you’re as enamored by Shakespeare’s prescience as Vox, hop over to Mask and Bauble Dramatic Society’s presentation of Macbeth Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 8 p.m. in Gonda Theatre.
Calling all astronauts! Wait, do we even have any astronauts since the demise of the Shuttle program? Either way, if you missed Discovery’s flyover on the back of a 747, take a look at it’s new home in the Welcome Discovery Festival at Dulles Airport.
If you’re not inebriated enough to get a tattoo on Friday night, GPB’s screenings of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo should satisfy your cravings for ink, minus the pain. It screens at 9:30 p.m. and midnight in the ICC Auditorium.
In a spring slump? Vox has the perfect pick-me-up: laugh your derriere off at Georgetown Improv‘s last show of the year. The jokes start at 9 p.m. in Bulldog Alley.
The Georgetown Water Street Project is hosting a Record Store Day showcase from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Local bands Los Rhinoceros, Young Rapids, Shark Week (wait, there’s a band called Shark Week?!?!), and Akshan fill this concert with enough power to run LXR’s perennially screwed up air conditioning unit.
Complement your night of Macbeth with a celebration of William Shakespeare’s birthday at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Apparently there will be jugglers roaming the grounds, and if that doesn’t convince you to go, you don’t have the right to call yourself a fan of Bill Shakespeare.
Distinguished environmentalist Bill McKibben is speaking at the Reiss Science Building at 7 p.m. Not in the mood for liberal proselytizing? Republicans will be staging a demonstration in which they not only label global warming a “liberal conspiracy” but forthrightly question the existence of the environment.
