MUSIC Colombian band Monsieur Periné combines Latin and European sounds with multilingual lyrics in Spanish, French, and English. The group won the 2015 Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist and recorded a Tiny Desk Concert during a previous trip to DC. Check out their gypsy-jazz sound at the 9:30 Club. $30, 7 PM.

COCKTAILS Mixing a good cocktail takes some practice. As we head into summer (and the heat of barbecue season), City Winery is offering a summer cocktail class. Learn how to make three cocktails—a summer sangria, genever Fletcher Christian, and a strawberry paloma—that will help you (and your friends) cool off in the heat. $35, 6:30 PM.


THEATER The musical Falsettos debuted on Broadway in 1992, garnering seven Tony nods and winning two (Best Book and Best Original Score). Its 2016 Broadway revival was also a hit, raking in four more Tony nominations. The story follows a nontraditional modern family: a charming and neurotic gay man and his ex-wife, new lover, soon-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, a psychiatrist, and the lesbian couple next door. Watch it all unfold at the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater. Recommended for ages 12 and up. Through June 23. $49-$139.

FILM Netflix is releasing Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese on June 12, but fans can catch a DC screening the night before at the National Museum of American History’s Warner Bros. Theater. Part documentary, part concert, the film shows Bob Dylan’s performances in the fall of 1975. $15, 6:30 PM.
