Getting Up Guide: Sustainable suds and a sleazy stage act

By Alex Baldinger and Lavanya Ramanathan

A quick serving of today's what-and-where:

Fermenting Revolution (Update: This event is sold out)
Join so-called Beer Activist Chris O'Brien at 7 p.m. for a tutored tasting that highlights beers that come from breweries doing their part to produce sustainable suds, including Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales, Victory Brewing Co. and Rockville's Baying Hound Aleworks.

"John F. Kennedy: Years of Lightning, Day of Drums"
From 1962 to 1967, the now-defunct U.S. Information Agency operated a motion-picture service that produced public relations-style films. Their masterpiece was this behind-the-scenes look at the 1,000 days of the Kennedy administration, narrated by Gregory Peck. This was more than some political puff piece, however: The National Board of Review named it one of 1964's best films. See how an administration operated and how a government office portrayed it at 7 p.m.

Red Bastard
No better name could describe Golden Nose Award winner for clown of the year Eric Davis's paunchy, caustic alter ego than the one he has chosen: the Red Bastard. It recalls comic-book villains, and in many ways, that's exactly what the Red Bastard is - a spandex-clad firecracker who can make an audience cower with a single glare. His adults-only show takes the stage at 8 p.m.
