MUSIC: Tickets are still available to catch Norwegian alt-pop songwriter Sondre Lerche at the 9:30 Club. Philadelphia's Nightlands and New York's Kishi Bashi are set to open. Doors open at 7 PM; Tickets ($15) can be purchased through Ticketfly.

Wednesday, June 8
THEATER: On stage now is the David Muse-directed production of David Ives's Venus in Fur, a tongue-in-cheek exploration of the relationship between actors and directors and ... sadomasochism. The play stars Erica Sullivan and Christian Conn, both of whom our critic says "deliver outstanding performances." At Studio Theatre through July 3. 8 PM; Tickets ($44 to $65) available at Studio Theatre’s Web site, or call (202) 332-3300.

SIGNING: There will be no talk or Q&A, but boxing and Dancing with the Stars fans won't want to miss an appearance by Sugar Ray Leonard at Politics and Prose. Leonard will sign copies of his new book, The Big Fight: My Life In and Out of the Ring, at 6 PM. Free.
