Getting Up Guide: Nick Hornby and Ben Folds team up

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:

Nick Hornby & Ben Folds
The PEN/Faulkner Foundation is sponsoring an evening with award-winning writer Nick Hornby and singer/musician Ben Folds to celebrate the new album, "Lonely Avenue," a collaboration of "musical short stories" with lyrics by Hornby and music/vocals from Folds. Hornby will read from his latest novel, "Juliet, Naked," while Folds will perform selections from "Lonely Avenue" at 7:30 p.m. Limited tickets remain for this event at the Sixth and I Synagogue.

D.C. Latin American Film Showcase
Portuguese and Spanish cinema are the focus of this two-week, free program of films at venues around the city. Films from Mexico, Paraguay, Cuba and Bolivia are also included. Tuesday's screenings at the GALA Hispanic Theatre at Tivoli Square are a pair of Spanish films: "7 Mesas," about a family that takes over a deceased relative's troubled pool hall; and "Mataharis," which explores the overlap between the private and professional lives of three detectives. The films are at 6 and 8 p.m. Free tickets are distributed outside the theater 30 minutes before showtime.

Worn Magazine Issue 2 launch party
D.C.-centric fashion and lifestyle pub Worn celebrates its second issue with a bash featuring an impressive lineup of local DJs. Keenan, Smudge, Sam Burns, Chris Burns, Cassidy, Lil' E and many others all take turns on the turntables at U Street Music Hall.
