Nightlife Agenda

This busy week features multiple Capital Pride parties, new pool parties, a concert by underground soul sensation (and one-time Arrested Development singer) Dionne Farris, a tasting of cult BrewDog beers from Scotland, an arty warehouse celebration that runs the gamut from live music to breakdancers to a graffiti-painting robot, a return performance by D.C.'s one-time "American Idol" Sy Smith, World Cup viewing parties and a rare show by hometown psychedelic stoner rockers Dead Meadow.
