Neko, Ben Folds, Andy Summers on photography

Neko Case is coming to D.C. on Dec. 1, but she won't be with the New Pornographers, and you won't find her on stage at the 9:30 Club or Black Cat. Case will appear at National Geographic's Grosvenor Auditorium as part of the institution's four-part "Music on Photography" series, with subsequent appearances by Ben Folds on Dec. 3, and Andy Summers of the Police on the following day.

Nightlife Agenda: Madonnagagarama and Thanksgiving parties

Get ready for a fun-filled holiday weekend. A number of bars are kicking off with special Wednesday events -- how does free cocktails at the Park at 14th with Big Tigger sound? -- but we're also excited for happy hours and retro dance parties on Thanksgiving night. Then you've got Fort Knox Five at Artisphere, a tribute to Madonna and Lady Gaga at Town and Doc Scantlin's swinging holiday party at the Carlyle Club.

Going veggie this Thanksgiving?

For some, Thanksgiving is one big Dionysian gorge-fest. For vegans and vegetarians, it can feel more like a day of fasting. More than likely, there's meat in the stuffing, butter in the mashed potatoes and giblets in the gravy. And you're left to nosh on the rolls. The best way to put your mind at ease is to bring your own Thanksgiving dishes (and keep the fact there's tofu lurking in your stuffing to yourself) or spend Thanksgiving where vegetarians won't get short shrift.
