(September 2, 10 & 12) SWEATER SET The femme duo Sweater Set performs some LIVE sets during concerts this week and next in D.C. Maureen Andary and Sara Curtin make up the duo and perform at two free events - tonight as the opening act at the Shakespeare Theater's Harman Center prior to Taming of the Shrew and during Arts on Foot near the National Portrait Gallery on September 12th. They also host a surprise CD release party at Solly's U Street Tavern September 10th, with their guitar and kazoo, whimsical sensibility and their own homemade cupcakes. (Thought it was offensive to call them girls)

(September 3) PHILLIPS AFTER FIVE The Phillips Collection near Dupont Circle honors America's real favorite pastime: work, tomorrow night from 5 to 8. This Labor Day celebration includes office games and laboriously prepared foods. You can also work up a sweat to the sounds of Silver Spring's Felix Contreras Latin Jazz Trio . Two gallery talks on the Painting Provence: The Riviera of van Gogh and Bonnard will be held at 6 and 7pm, as well as a Curatorial Dialogue on George Baselitz and Philip Guston. To work out the kinks, DC Acro-Yoga will be on hand with demos of their acrobatics, yoga and Thai massage.

(Sept 3) ASIA AFTER DARK You can art, drink and be merry during Asia After Dark at the Smithsonian's Freer Gallery on the Mall, tomorrow night at 6:30. Come dressed in your favorite peacock colors for the Rock to Peacock Shock dance party in the famous Whistler Peacock Room and enjoy food from Bangkok Joe's, Mie N Yu and Asia Nine.
