(February 5) "DRIVE-BY" AT THE AFI The AFI in Silver Spring, Maryland will have two screenings of the movie The Secret to a Happy Ending tomorrow night at 9:15 p.m. and midnight. Director Barr Weissman will be on hand to talk about his film, a documentary about the band, the Drive-By Truckers, with its roots in the American South and its message of redemption through Rock-n-Roll.

(February 5 & 6) ALCHEMY The performance is called Alchemy, and it takes place on stage at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center tomorrow and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. The dance juxtaposes moves based on the Bible's Book of Daniel with the story of journalist Daniel Pearl, who was murdered in Pakistan in 2002. There's a free discussion before Friday's show with dance critic and historian Suzanne Carbonneau at 7 p.m. to explore the choreographer's inspiration and creation.

(February 5-26) MARYLAND'S MARCELLA The art of Maryland's Marcella Morgese goes up tomorrow in the Library Gallery at the Montpelier Arts Center in Riverdale and will be on display through February 26th. You can meet the artist during a reception tomorrow night from 7 to 9 p.m. as she leads audiences past her works of steel and wood.
