Free and easy events

By Stephanie Merry

This week's free events include the Kennedy Center's Page-to-Stage Festival and musician John Davis' visit to the Writer's Center.

Monday
'Lost at Sea: The Ocean in the English Imagination, 1550-1750'
Check out paintings, writing and marine tools that give a sense of the Elizabethan view of the ocean.

Tuesday
Kokayi listening party
Local Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter MC and producer Kokayi celebrates the release of his new single, "Roxstar," with DJ Saucee, who will provide party-ready jams the rest of the night.

Wednesday
Liquid Soul
This performance is as strange a promotional event as you are likely to see: The artists of AM Radio will create art by mixing Vitamin Water into their paint. Free Vitamin Water (as well as Bacardi cocktails) will also be available, of course.

Thursday
Thursday lunchtime concerts
Take a break from work to check out local blues group the Stacy Brooks Band, and don't worry about packing a lunch. The weekly Rosslyn farmers market, open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., promises locally grown fruit and freshly baked bread.

Friday
'Story/Stereo'
The series that pairs authors and musicians starts its new season with writers Aryn Kyle and Allison Benis White teamed with John Davis, who will perform songs from his career with favorite D.C. groups Q and Not U, Georgie James and Title Tracks.

Saturday
'Page to Stage'
More than 40 area theater companies participate in this annual series of free readings and play previews. Participating troupes include African Continuum Theater Company, Folger Theatre, Signature Theatre, Synetic Theater, Taffety Punk, Washington Shakespeare Company and more.

Sunday
NSO Labor Day Concert
Gates at 3:15 p.m. for this annual concert by the National Symphony Orchestra, this year led by Associate Conductor Emil de Cou.
