The last days of a dying rock band are chronicled in Rock Bottom at Northwest Washington's DC Arts Center. The rock opus is set in Amsterdam, where a band called Blood Orphans is attempting to complete the last leg of its tour. The dark comedy sees the band's members through some tough times until early August.

Baptista's Brazilian percussion has helped flesh out the sounds of Paul Simon, David Byrne and Dr. John. With his own band, the veteran musician blends world music with jazz for a singular style that's sure to make you move.
