Getting Up Guide: Interpol, the Washington Ballet's 'Romeo'
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Wednesday:
Frontman Paul Banks leads this dapper, brooding New York outfit on the road once more, in support of 2010's self-titled release, one that features the final notes played as a member of the band by Carlos Dengler, the enigmatic bass player whose wardrobe and mannerisms were among the most compelling reasons to see the band live. Thanks to a catalog of reliable hits from 2002 onward, though, there are plenty of other reasons to be at Constitution Hall for the 7 p.m. show.
Ian Frazier: Travels in Siberia
For a region that claims nearly one-seventh of Earth's landmass, Siberia remains the great, wintry unknown to most non-Russians. But not writer Ian Frazier, who traveled the great Slavic plains in search of historical landmarks and discoveries unknown for his latest book, "Travels in Siberia." At 7 p.m.
The Washington Ballet: Romeo and Juliet
The company performs Septime Webre's interpretation of the Bard's famous tragedy with Prokofiev's expressive score. At 8 p.m.
