Getting Up Guide: FotoWeek DC launch; Roky Erickson

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 Friday:

FotoWeek DC Launch Party
The Cororan Gallery of Art and other venues throughout the city host a week of photo exhibits, lectures, workshops and outdoor projections. Winning photos will be unveiled at this cocktail launch party. Do look your best. You will be photographed.

Roky Erickson

The psych rock icon who fronted 13th Floor Elevators and has lived a troubled life is back with his first new album in nearly 15 years. With Benjy Ferree at the Black Cat.

Clinic; the Fresh and Onlys
Does Clinic gain points for being so consistent over the course of its decade-plus career or lose points for basically doing the same thing over and over? We'll go with the former, especially because the band's live shows are so outstanding. They still wear those O.R. scrubs and play songs that fall into one of a few categories: surging, organ-fueled drone rock; speedy, short-burst punk rock or moody, melodica-driven, spaghetti-western fare. Openers Fresh and Onlys is a standout in the current garage-throwback pack; new album "Play It Strange" is its best collection yet of '60s psych-pop. See both bands at the Rock & Roll Hotel.
