Getting Up Guide: 'Ameriville' and Brazilian rhythms
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Thursday:
Meet the Artist: Guillermo Kuitca
The same day "Guillermo Kuitca: Everything -- Paintings and Works on Paper, 1980-2008" goes on display, featuring striking black-and-white depictions of baggage carousels and colorful renditions of theater seating plans, Argentinian artist Guillermo Kuitca pays a visit to the Hirshhorn to discuss his more than 30-year career. His talk starts at 7 p.m.
Hurricane Katrina left a mark on us all, and the UNIVERSES performing arts ensemble wants to keep the disaster firmly implanted in our minds. Through storytelling, rhythm, jazz, gospel and hip-hop, the foursome forces us to critically examine the state of our union. Curtain at the Round House Theatre in Bethesda is at 8 p.m.
DJ Neville C -- a.k.a. Som Records owner Neal Becton -- has made numerous trips to Brazil to shop for vinyl, and the depth of his collection shows at this monthly club event: Brazilian Embassy staffers get down to the sounds of forró, axe and pagode while newbies try the fresh caipirinha cocktails at the bar. For this month's third anniversary party, Saint-Ex will have Brazilian food and drink specials before the music starts.
