The Wu-Tang Clan descends on the District Friday.

(Dec. 23) R.I.P. O.D.B.
If your holiday season wouldn’t be complete without a few words from your friendly neighborhood Wu-Tang Clan tomorrow will be your lucky day. The influential Staten Island collective comprised of RZA, GZA, Raekwon, Ghostface Kilah, Masta Killa, U-God and Method Man is widely considered to be the best hip-hop group of all time. The clan brings almost twenty years of rhymes, swagger and chopped-up soul samples to The State Theatre in Falls Church.

(Dec. 23-31) HearSee
A collective of local artists interprets the five senses in HearSee, showing at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria through the end of the month. The artists explore how we interpret and understand the world around us through a variety of media including paint, sculpture and photography.
