Getting Up Guide: Buster Keaton; BYT's best images
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Wednesday:
Though Charlie Chaplin has had more staying power, Buster Keaton is one of the greatest comedians ever filmed. "The General," despite its awkward Confederate Army associations, is his masterpiece. Keaton plays a young would-be Confederate soldier who has to try to save both his train and his girlfriend, against all odds. The film will be accompanied by a live orchestra at the National Archives at 7 p.m.
Hanoi Millennium: ModernWorks Ensemble
Celebrate the 1,000th anniversary of the bustling Vietnamese city with a performance of pieces for piano and strings by leading Vietnamese composers Ton-That Tiet, P. Q. Phan, and Vu Nhat Tan, as well as Bung-Ching Lam and Narong Prangcharoen. The performance at the Freer Gallery starts at 7:30 p.m.
Young @ Heart
Over the past four years, the photographers of Brightest Young Things have been everywhere in the D.C. nightlife universe: clubs, gallery openings, pool parties, concerts and hotel bashes, resulting in an archive of nearly 75,000 images. This curated show, which begins at FotoWeek Satellite Central at 8 p.m., highlights the best of the bunch.
