There are many things to do this weekend in DC to celebrate this year's Chanukah (the ancient Hebrew celebration of Christmas), which begins on Monday. For example: you can play limbo with some people from Barbados in their Embassy. And then there's Oasis, and some comic book competition thing, and many other things too.


Friday

  • The vaguely 80s, vaguely world-y CSS (or Cansei de Ser Sexy, in some R/romance language) is playing the 9:30 Club.¬† $20, 7 PM. [9:30 Club]
  • Huge DJ consortium thing at the 9:30 Club tonight, featuring Tittsworth and Nadastrorm. [9:30 Club]
  • The Country of Barbados is throwing an enormous beach-themed party tonight because what else are they doing with their Embassy? Literally nothing. There will be rum, limbo, possibly diplomats in bathing suits. [Washington Post]
  • Bluesy Tennessee-based Last Train home will be at Iota for a full three days, starting tonight. $13, 9 PM. [Iota]

Saturday

  • Enjoy the alt-country stylings of Rhett Miller at the Black Cat. $15, 9 PM. [Black Cat]
  • This weekend there's SuperArtFight, a competition between comic book and graphic artists. It's in Baltimore (day trip!) and there will be music there too. $10, 8 PM. [SuperArtFight]
  • The Brothers Gallagher bring their hubris and, hopefully, stuff from What's the Story, to the George Mason University Patriot Center. Price vary, 7 PM. [Washington Post]

Sunday

  • The Shirks, a local band of the punk persuasion, play Galaxy Hut. 9 PM. [Galaxy Hut]

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
