Monday, September 8

DANCE: An electronic-music mainstay for nearly two decades now, DJ Shadow has been releasing his at-times haunting beats since before the newest crop of EDM stars were even born. He just launched a new record label called Liquid Amber, and will presumably be playing some of his new cuts at the Fillmore tonight. $48. 9 PM.

Tuesday, September 9

COMEDY: The Last Resort comedy show, which features up-and-coming comics from all over the region, has moved to Bier Baron, where you can get one (or a couple) of hundreds of different brews to help loosen you up a bit. As always, the show is free. 8:30 PM.

Wednesday, September 10

BIKE: DC Bike Party is getting classy this week with its Country Club Cruise—wear your Brooks Brothers, Vineyard Vines, and whatever else you might wear when you’re hitting the golf course or going to a fancy (but not too fancy) cotillion. Bonus points if you’ve got a cruiser or some other sort of bougie bike. After a few miles’ ride, things end up at—where else?—H Street Country Club. Free. 7:30 PM.

Thursday, September 11

THEATER: Roger (Not His Real Name) opens at DC Arts Center this week. The one-man show stars Matthew Vaky as a conspiracy theory-believing homeless person, which will strike a chord with those of you who believe President Obama is actually a lizard person. It’s being described as a “homeless man’s House of Cards”—let’s hope it’s as dramatic and enthralling as that series. $18. 7:30 PM.
