Getting Up Guide: Crafty women, River James, Ex-Humans

By Lavanya Ramanathan, Alex Baldinger and David Malitz

Morning, Washington. Here's what's happening Thursday:

Celebrate the Season Holiday Gift Market
The National Museum of Women in the Arts hosts the second of a two-day holiday sale featuring -- what else? -- the work of female artists. Pick up jewelry, frame-worthy photographs, crafts, home decor and more for your loved ones, or just check out the museum from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

River James
Vince Scheuerman will play with his new band, River James, for the first time in Washington next week, but you might remember the Gaithersburg native from the six years he spent fronting indie rockers Army of Me. They're joined by Deleted Scenes tonight at the Black Cat.

At Comet Ping Pong tonight, five bands will churn out short, fast and loud songs that should inspire enough trashing about to keep bodies warm in these bitterly cold days. The headliners are Brooklyn's Ex-Humans, a trio that plays a no-nonsense brand of punk, equal strong on the heavy and the hooks. The same can be said of locals the Shirks, who earlier this year released one of 2010's best singles, local or otherwise. Foster Care, Hollywood and the Furries make it a packed evening.
