Where & When: What to Do Tonight

Recover from the snowstorm with a dance party, free film, or a night at the theater

DJ Mark Farina has been known to spin sets that last up to eight hours, and his underground house style has landed him on a couple of Top DJs lists. He’s playing the Sweet Spot (1140 19th St., NW) tonight at 10. Get tickets ($10) at EventBrite.

My Tehran for Sale is a 2009 documentary that tells the story of a young Iranian actress struggling to succeed despite the obstacles thrown up by Iran’s brutal regime. Catch a free screening at 7 at the Freer Gallery. Filmmaker Granaz Moussavi will be on hand afterward to discuss her work.

A couple of old favorites are coming to the area’s stages this weekend. The dance-and-percussion show Stomp, which has added tractor tires to its arsenal of “instruments,” is at the Warner Theatre through January 30. Tickets ($37 to $57) are available at Ticketmaster. In Arlington, Synetic Theatre (1800 S. Bell St.) has brought back its wordless production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. At Crystal City Theatre through January 30; get tickets ($40 to $50) at the venue’s Web site.
