World Wrestling Entertainment comes to DC on Monday, December 1. We’re not sure how many Washingtonians are into wrestling, but the fact that the venue is the Verizon Center makes us think there are more than a few. Tickets ($20 to $75) go on sale Saturday at 10 AM.

Our mistake: Tickets for Against Me! with Ted Leo and the Pharmacists didn’t go on sale last week as reported, and instead, go on sale this Friday at 5 PM. The show is Wednesday, October 8, at the Black Cat and tickets are $18.

Check out its show at Sonar on Wednesday, November 19, for $15. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 AM.

High-energy pop/rock band Electric Six (the one behind the 2003 hit “Danger! High Voltage”) hits the road with Local H and the Golden Dogs for the “Hittin’ the Walls and Workin’ the Middle” tour this fall. See the band at the Black Cat on Wednesday, November 19, for $15; tickets go on sale Friday.
