Next stop—the New York Times bestsellers list. 7 PM.

MUSIC: Alt-rock group Girl in a Coma are dropping by DC9 tonight. The San Antonio trio have “a knack for impressing their elders,” says Rolling Stone.Morrissey hand-selected them to open for him during his 2007 tour, and they impressed prima punker Joan Jett so much, she signed them to her Blackheart Records.” You can listen to some of their songs here. Tickets can be purchased through DC9’s Web site for $10 or at the door for $12. Doors open at 8 PM; the show starts at 8:30.

Little ones will have a blast at Puck Puppet Theatre’s The Book of Apolodor at the Kennedy Center. The Romanian story follows a talented penguin’s adventure around the world. This performance is part of the Kids Euro Festival, which runs through November 10. Free. 6 PM.
