(March 21-April 3) iPOTS

(March 21) OPEN5THS
Washington's open5ths was conceived of in a London pub, which may or may not explain why the a cappella ensemble has a proclivity toward sea shanties and Billy Joel. In addition to songs about drunken sailors and uptown girls you'll hear some doo-wop, spirituals, and Renaissance-era favorites tonight at Northwest's National Theatre.
