(March 2-May 15) BECOMING BLINKY German abstract painter Blinky Palermo's work is best appreciated en masse, which is possible stateside for the first time at the Hirshhorn Museum on the National Mall through mid-May. Blinky Palermo: Retrospective 1964-1977 highlights the evolution of the painter's trademark bold colors and geometric shapes from his early shift away from traditional materials to his late works of acrylic paint on metal.

(March 2-20) ONE COLORFUL COAT For more bold colors, there's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Maryland's Olney Theatre until late March. The favorite of Jacob's 12 sons is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, only to end up on top with a better wardrobe in the musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

(March 2-6) MIDDLE BROTHER New York's Middle Brother is a trio of unrelated folk-rockers. The frontmen of three separate bands decided that their harmonic abilities would blend better together than apart. The poppy results play out Tuesday night at the 9:30 Club in Northwest Washington.

Music: "Schrapnell" by Isolée
