(Dec. 27-Jan. 8) Can’t get eknuffle?
If you’ve never seen a Knuffle Bunny you probably don’t spend a lot of time in the children’s section at your local book store. Mo Willem’s popular picture book Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale is mostly the tale of Trixie, who loses her favorite stuffed animal at the laundromat. She eventually rescues the rabbit, learning a lot about family, friends, baby steps and dancing laundry along the way. The Cautionary Musical version of Knuffle Bunny is staged through January 8th at The Kennedy Center.

(Dec. 27) Chopteeth at Iota
Chopteeth is the District’s own afrobeat big band. Its twelve members have backed everyone from Gladys Knight to Busta Rhymes. Together they fuse the best of jazz, pop and West African tribal music with vocals in English, Nigerian Pidgin and about six other languages. The band takes to the Iota Club & Cafe stage tonight.

Music: “Onwu Dinjo” by The People Star
