Sunday, Oct. 4
Takoma Park Street Festival
Takoma Park's Main Street turns into a giant block party with live music -- including acts like the Nighthawks, Chopteeth, the Grandsons and Tom Principato -- plus food vendors, local artists, crafts and family activities.

Update: We moved the events we wrote about earlier in the week to the bottom of the post. This way, it's easier for you to find our Free and Easy picks for today at the top.

'Studs' at Solas Nua's 'Irish Popcorn!'
On the fourth Monday of the month, the Irish arts group Solas Nua screens a contemporary Irish film at the Flashpoint gallery and offers up all-you-can-eat popcorn. The 2009-10 season begins with "Studs," a comedy about a hopeless amateur soccer team. It stars Brendan Gleeson, also known for his role as as "Mad Eye" Moody in the "Harry Potter" films.

You have one last chance to see this show, dedicated to innovative Colombian architect Rogelio Salmona, who was known for his gorgeous brickwork. Drawings, photos, video and scale models are all included.
