(August 2-September 30) FROM EAST OF THE RIVER Anacostia gets artful during Greetings From East of the River, a free multi-venue art show highlighting this multifaceted neighborhood. Local artists from Wards 7 and 8 drew inspiration from the borough's historical and social issues to produce paintings, photography, drawings and sculptures. Three hot spots in Southeast D.C. - the ARCH Center, Honfleur Gallery and Vivid Solutions - house these neighborly works through the end of September.

(August 2-29) WALLMOUNTABLES If you feel like flipping the equation, Adams Morgan's DCAC is offering a hands-on opportunity - YOU get to hang the art on the gallery's walls during the annual 1460 Wallmountables show. Grab your hammer and nails for this friendly competition, and see how you fare against other amateur artists through the end of August.

(August 2) THE EVENS For fun out-of-doors, Fort Reno has been rocking the District every summer for over forty years. These days the free family-friendly concerts bring indie rockers and their hard-core cohorts to the stage at Fort Reno Park in Tenleytown. Punk-duo The Evens kicks things off tonight, along with the inky band Cephalopods tonight at 7.
