Getting Up Guide: Deerhunter; A Fox on the Fairway

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 Tuesday:

Deerhunter
On their new album, "Halcyon Digest," these indie rockers, fronted by indie-rock trendsetter du jour Bradford Cox, find the perfect middle ground between sonic experiments and accessible pop songs. At the 9:30 Club with Casino v. Japan and Ducktails at 7 p.m.


"A Fox on the Fairway"

A stuffy, private country club gets turned upside-down in Ken Ludwig's screwball comedy that pays winking homage to the pratfalls of mid-20th-century English farces. The "Crazy For You" writer's world premier has another thing going for it: Holly Twyford, who returns to Signature on the heels of 2009's "The Little Dog Laughed." The opening night curtain rises at 7:30 p.m.

Wale Presents the Board Administration
The Board Administration is D.C. rapper Wale's new label, founded with UCB vocalist Tre, and you can get a look at two of its members at a U Street Music Hall Showcase. Straight outta Alexandria is Black Cobain, a deft MC whose pop-culture references and pop-oriented hooks show a definite kinship with Wale and Fat Trel, whose rhymes on his new "No Secrets" mixtape are darker and more sinister than Wale's upbeat party jams. Go-Go favorites UCB, who've backed Wale everywhere from MTV to the 9:30 Club, provide the beats.
