Theater: Mr. Burns, A Post Electric Play
Woolly Mammoth Theatre
641 D St., NW
Remember that episode of The Simpsons when they spoof Cape Fear? The one where Side Show Bob traps Bart on a boat and they do the HMS Pinafore together? This play remembers, which is just one of the reasons why it's so good. Stick around after for a special talk about the making of the production with the cast and crew.
Support the theater! Tix are $60.

Second Annual DC Flag Day
Dupont Circle and Eighteenth Street Lounge
1212 18th St., NW
First of all, the idea of a national Flag Day is just a little weird. Add to that the fact that DC doesn't have a star on Old Glory and it's just plain wack. And so, to remedy this ridiculousness, this city is having its own Flag Day. Come celebrate in Dupont then head over to ESL at night to hear some sweet DJs, including a set from Bluebrain, one of our personal favorites.
