Jay-Z to Hopefully Not Perform Any "Kingdom Come" Songs in DC

Friday

* Pigs and Battleships @ the Freer Gallery, "a favorite of Susan Sontag, Imamura's 'first genuine masterpiece' (film scholar David Desser) is a scathing view of postwar Japan. It takes the perspective of a young couple trying to make a life together in a grubby port town where getting ahead depends on petty crime or working for the prostitution industry serving the US navy ships docked in the harbor." Free, 7PM. [Freer and Sackler Galleries]


* Jay-Z @ Love, "notoriously hardworking rapper that he is, Hova will make a detour to Love after promoting his new album, "American Gangster," at a sold-out Baltimore show tomorrow night. He'll drop by the D.C. club to attend his record release party, but get this: Instead of just making the rounds, Jigga will even perform a few songs." $50, 9PM [Love]

Saturday

* Shaolin Warriors @ GWU Lisner Auditorium, "Death-defying combat moves define Shaolin Warriors, who perform an exciting display of remarkable skill, stunning movement, and spectacular Kung Fu. The warriors are known throughout the world for disciplined spiritualism and martial-arts prowess." $25, 2PM. [Brightest Young Things]

Sunday

* DJ Dredd @ the Black Cat, "DJ Dredd serves up a WWF-style battle royale version of his wildly popular theme parties at the Black Cat tonight. Prince vs Michael Jackson vs Rick James allows endless opportunities for comparison and contrast. Three different shades of '80s androgyny are represented, along with match-ups of synth pop ('Erotic City'), slick disco soul ('Rock With You') and sleazy, greasy funk ('Bustin' Out'). The real winners are the folks getting sweaty on the Black Cat's dancefloor." $10, 9PM. [WP]
