Things to Do

Where & When: What to Do Tonight

Hear from a top author and an up-and-coming band

Best-selling author Jodi Picoult’s novels often revolve around themes of family and love. Her latest work, Sing You Home, involves a same-sex couple and their fight for a child. She’s speaking with Ron Charles, deputy editor of the Washington Post’s Book World, at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. 7 PM; buy tickets and a copy of the book ($35) at Ticket Fly.

Even if you didn’t get tickets to singer Ellie Goulding’s show, you can attend the after party at the Rock & Roll Hotel. It’s being thrown by Brightest Young Things, Chris Nitti is DJing, and rail drinks are half off. 9 PM; no cover.

(The Sounds of) Kaleidoscope started as a basement music experiment involving vacuum cleaners as the rhythm section. The band has since moved up, but the music is still trippy. Check out the group at the Black Cat; 8:30. Purchase tickets ($8) at Ticket Alternative.
