It’s the last week of July, and D.C. is offering concerts, free yoga and the chance to catch a movie outdoors.
And make sure you check out our suggestions for Thursday. You’ll find a little throwback flavor.
Mates of State at U Street Music Hall: The veteran indie-pop duo, started in 1997, hits U Street Music Hall Monday night. The husband and wife musical combo of Jason Hammel and Kori Gardener has toured with countless artists over the years, including Jimmy Eat World and The Postal Service. Tickets are $20.
Reignwolf at Rock & Roll Hotel: For more of a hard-rock vibe, head out to Rock & Roll Hotel to see Reignwolf. The rock band is known for its high-energy live performances.
Sunset Yoga and Pilates at the Georgetown Waterfront: Sore after a long day at the intern desk? Relax with a free yoga session by the Georgetown Waterfront. Fuel Pilates will teach this Tuesday’s class.
Stand-Up Variety Show at Nick’s Riverside Grill: Stick around the Waterfront to catch some stand-up comedy, singing and games at Nick’s Riverside Grill starting at 6 p.m.. This free event is 18+, unlike most comedy shows in the area that are usually only open to the 21-and-up crowd.
Rustie at U Street Music Hall: Like hip-hop? Like the sound of lasers? Then you’ll probably love Scottish musician Rustie, known for producing tracks that blend the sounds of dubstep, hip-hop and bass music. Catch him at U Street Music Hall for $10.
“Pitch Perfect” at the NoMa Summer Screen: As long as one of D.C.’s trademark thunderstorms doesn’t roll through, you can go see “Pitch Perfect” in NoMa. The hit movie with a sequel in the works is sure to draw crowds, so bring your blankets and chairs a little early to get a prime spot and still have time to grab some popcorn.
Smash Mouth at The State Theatre: It’s throwback time. Tickets are still available to see Smash Mouth at The State Theatre, and the best part is they’re only $25. Come on, you know you want to see a live performance of “Walkin’ On The Sun.”
Big Maze Late Night at the National Building Museum: The museum will have extended hours, giving you time to explore all the exhibitions and try your hand at navigating through the big maze. Tickets are $16.
