Nightlife Agenda

There's a long weekend on the horizon, and we have a huge stack of options in this week's column. The return of Buzz, with a reunion of the cult Dubtribe Soundsystem. An outdoor "Ferris Bueller" screening followed by an '80s dance party. A super-sized Fatback with live go-go and electro-funk bands. A DJ from the Happy Mondays. (No, seriously.) An alt-country doubleheader with two of the genre's biggest names. A roast for basketball star (and Takoma Park native) Steve Francis with former teammates. A Flip Cup Tournament with cheap beer.
