(March 23) BASIA BULAT Canadian singer-songwriter Basia Bulat crosses the 49th parallel to take the stage at Iota Club & Cafe in Arlington tonight at 8:30 p.m. Bulat applies some folk-pop heat on the guitar, autoharp and hammered dulcimer, but it's her mature, incandescent voice that promises to warm the room.

(March 23) AFRICA'S LOST EDEN The Environmental Film Festival continues to green the region this week. You can catch the D.C. premiere of Antiplano tonight at 7:15 p.m. at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Northeast D.C. This powerful documentary is set in the Peruvian Andes and focuses on two women caught in the middle of a mercury spill.

(March 24-May 2) REASONS TO BE PRETTY Neil Labute's play, reasons to be pretty, makes its debut tomorrow night at Studio Theatre near Logan Circle, and runs through May 2nd. The bad-boy playwright's dark comedy about four working-class friends and lovers tackles some of the unspoken truths of our contemporary lives and vanities.
