STORYTELLING: Four storytellers take the mike at Science Club’s brand new series, Perfect Liars Club. The catch? One of the stories is completely made up. See if you can spot the one with his or her pants on fire. And if you can pass a polygraph with no sweat, sign up to tell a story of your own. $5. 7 PM.


Tuesday, May 7

COMEDY: Clarendon’s Iota Club & Cafe brought you the 9, an every-once-in-a-while concert series featuring nine short sets from nine different singer/songwriters. Now it’s hoping the same formula works with standup comedy. Each of nine touring and local comics will do two quick sets, perfect for those of you with ADD. $10. 8 PM.


Wednesday, May 8

BIKE: People are freaking out (with good reason) about the upcoming Daft Punk album. If that’s your scene, meet up at Dupont Circle for the Robot Ride, a night of two-wheeled mischief themed for the electronic music duo. You and more than 300 other people will go on a four-ish-mile bike ride through the city as a deejay gets pulled around in a pedicab blasting Daft Punk. Things end up at the Brixton, where you can ditch your wheels and start dancing. Free. 7:30 PM.


Thursday, May 9

GATSBY: After months of waiting, Baz Luhrmann’s take on The Great Gatsby is finally ready for public consumption. Before you check out a midnight screening, don your best Roaring Twenties outfit and head to Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club to check out Doc Scantlin and his band play swing and cabaret in celebration of the movie’s release. Tickets ($20) are available online. 8 PM.
