Easter Is Now Celebrated with Mole Rats and Reggae


the Easter Bunny of the depression yearsTonight: British folk-rock stalwart Robyn Hitchcock, of Soft Boys "fame," will be singing weird lyrics, lecturing his audience, and generally being awesome all over the Black Cat tonight. $20 tickets are still available here. 8PM. [Black Cat]

  • Friday, April 10: "Trendy" Gallery Restaurant and Lounge in Silver Spring is hosting DNB Directory 2009, a round robin of 10 drum and bass DJs from the area. This is an offshoot of Loda, the Gallery's weekly electronic music night which is "redefining definitions" of, uh, electronic music. 9PM; $5 before 10PM, $10 after. [WaPo]
  • Friday, April 10: DJs Lovefinger and Lee Douglas will be playing disgustingly funky disco-type music at Comet Ping Pong. Beautiful Swimmers, local purveryors of the same type of "nu disco" as the headliners, are opening. Come prepared to dance with reckless abandon. 9:30PM, free. [Comet Ping Pong]
  • Saturday, April 11: Beirut will be playing its (admittedly catchy) Bavarian carnival music at the Sixth & I Synagogue. It's sold out, but you can still find tickets on Craigslist for around $40. 8PM. [Sixth & I Synagogue]
  • Monday, April 13: What do reggae music, historical quilts, and naked mole rats have in common? Nothing, really, but nevertheless they will all be hanging around the National Zoo on Monday. The steel drums and reggae will join the historical quilt (in honor of Rosa Parks!), animal meet-and-greets, and childlike activities like double dutch jump rope in a miscellaneous celebration of, somehow, Easter. 10AM to 4PM, free. [National Zoo]
