(Dec. 4) ONE COMMON UNITY DANCE The District's U Street Music Hall does what it does best Saturday night: It throws a dance party. Washington nonprofit One Common Unity celebrates a decade of work with rug cutting and performance from local musicians, including the deft African drummers of D.C.'s Farafina Kan.

(Dec. 4-22) YEAR-END ART Just a couple of blocks away from the Music Hall is Project 4 Gallery, capping off the year with "Yuletide," Saturday through Dec. 22. The exhibition features a selection of recycled glass, wood sculptures, transformed vinyl records and more from the gallery’s most frequent collaborators.

(Dec. 4-12) A CELTIC CHRISTMAS Washington's Historic Dumbarton Church celebrates 25 years of Celtic Christmas this and next weekend in Georgetown. Harps-guitar hybrids, lutes, and a number of other traditional string instruments will be on hand to celebrate the season.

(Dec. 5) DAN DEACON Baltimore musician Dan Deacon eschews traditional instrumentation for raucous electronic innovation. He doesn’t much care for stages either. Deacon sets up shop in front of the Kennedy Center's Theater Lab stage Sunday at 6 p.m. for an evening of music and demanding audience participation.

Background music: Paddling Ghost by Dan Deacon
