Getting Up Guide: Warhol's M.J. portrait; Belle and Sebastian

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 Thursday:

Michael Jackson Portrait Talk
When Andy Warhol painted "Michael Joseph Jackson" in 1984, he knew he was immortalizing genius, but he probably didn't realize just how bizarre that genius would turn out to be. National Portrait Gallery researcher Warren Perry discusses Warhol's synthetic polymer and silkscreen on canvas portrayal of a jheri-curled, post-"Thriller" M.J. at 6 p.m.

Belle and Sebastian
These Glaswegian indie-pop luminaries, fronted by Stuart Murdoch, are back with "Write About Love," their first album in nearly five years and also a tidy mission statement for their precious, pristine songs. They're at Constitution Hall at 7 p.m. With Versus.

Opening Reception for Skateboarding Side Effects

Artisphere's largest visual-arts space, the Terrace Gallery, celebrates its first show, "Skateboarding Side Effects," with a reception that features a screening of the skateboarding documentary "Deathbowl to Downtown" at 9 p.m. The exhibit features work by artists who are also skateboarders -- and whose skater days influence their art. Artists include: Tim Bearse, Rick Charnoski, Sean Greene, Lia Halloran and others.
