Getting Up Guide: 'Stories About Being a Guest' and Steve Mason

By Fritz Hahn, Anne Kenderdine and Stephanie Merry

What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Tuesday:

Mi Casa es Tu Casa: Stories About Being a Guest, Having Guests and Hospitality at Town Danceboutique
SpeakeasyDC's theme is perfect for venting -- or just laughing -- about zany holiday visitors. The lineup of storytellers is full, but anyone can come in to hear the true tales. The cover is $10, and for an extra $10 you can tuck into the buffet provided by Nellie's Sports Bar.

Steve Mason at the Red Palace
More than a decade after the Beta Band became U.K. breakout stars for its unique combination of electronic, folk and experimental rock sounds, former frontman Steve Mason has really simplified things. After his former band fizzled out and subsequent projects failed to gain traction, he is touring in support of his solo debut, "Boys Outside." It's a relatively straightforward affair, with the experimentation largely stripped away in favor of folk-pop with some electronic flourishes. Rarely does an album this straightforward sound like such a left turn.

"South Pacific" at the Kennedy Center

The Broadway revival of the World War II musical "South Pacific" by Rodgers and Hammerstein garnered rave reviews and numerous Tonys in 2008. Tonight the national touring version of the show responsible for lodging "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair" into so many heads opens at the Kennedy Center. If you go, pay special attention to that full-fledged orchestra, Peter Marks says.
