(Dec. 2-26) STUDIO'S MOJO The District's Studio Theatre has Mojo today through Christmas. The production tracks a tumultuous time at a 1950s underground rock-and-roll club in England. Playwright Jez Butterworth won an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy after Mojo's debut in London.

(Dec. 3) THE WALKMEN Washington-raised and New York City-based indie rockers The Walkmen know a thing or two about rock-and roll. They sound something like a young U2, if U2 were led by Bob Dylan, and Bob Dylan was really angry at an ex-girlfriend who broke his heart. The Walkmen rock Northwest Washington's 9:30 Club tonight in support of their latest acclaimed offering, Lisbon.

(Dec. 2-Jan.2) TORPEDO ON METAL Alexandria's Torpedo Factory Art Center prefers metal to rock-and-roll. Metalwork 2010 opens tonight with a reception and runs for the next month. The Washington Guild of Goldsmiths' biennial juried exhibit showcases the work of metal, jewelry, and enamel artists from the region.

Background music: The Rat by The Walkmen
