The DC Irish Writers Festival kicks off with a reception and a discussion at the Goethe-Institut about the latest writing from Northern Ireland. The festival runs through March 7, and includes talks and readings from a variety of contemporary Irish writers. For a complete schedule and to purchase tickets, visit the Solas Nua Web site.

DC’s newest performance-art group, Story League—cofounded by Washingtonian contributing editor Cathy Alter—combines the talents of local poets, actors, comedians, and others. These characters are talking about anything and everything in their debut show at Black Fox Lounge (1723 Connecticut Ave., NW) at 8. Buy tickets ($7) at Brown Paper Tickets.

Camp Freddy, performing at the 9:30 Club, is way more than just a band. It’s a gathering of some of rock’s biggest names, headed up by Billy Morrison and Dave Navarro, among others, and the jam sessions include covers of legendary songs and guest appearances. Proceeds from tonight’s show benefit Rivers of Recovery, which aids disabled veterans. 8 PM; get tickets ($100) at Ticket Fly.
