Getting Up Guide: Jamie Lidell and Sonic Circuits

By Alex Baldinger

What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Monday:

Jamie Lidell
Soulful. Funky. Jamiroquaian? While that's not a real word, it's probably the easiest way to describe the British vocalist-slash-producer's sparkly sound. Lidell's zippy, uptempo club music is more "Canned Heat" than "Virtual Insanity," but the similarities are unmistakable. If you're looking for a place to get down on a Monday night, look no further than the 9:30 Club tonight at 7 p.m.

Rebecca Traister
Book events abound this week as George Mason University's Fall For the Book continues through Friday, and Saturday's National Book Festival is on the horizon. But Washington book lovers and political junkies know there's always Politics and Prose: Head to the Northwest bookseller tonight for a discussion and signing by Rebecca Traister, a senior writer for Salon, who will discuss and sign her new book, "Big Girls Don't Cry: The Election that Changed Everything for American Women," at 7 p.m.

Sonic Circuits at Strathmore
It's not your typical Strathmore fare, but the Sonic Circuits Experimental Music showcase is worth the trip to North Bethesda. Three local bands will perform genre-blurring sets that range from loopy and entrancing (Trophies) to jazzy and improvisational (Gestures) to completely unrehearsed (The Lost Civilizations). The show begins at 8 p.m.
