(Jan. 7-28) The other NYSE
When you hear the letters NYSE, the New York Society of Etchers is probably not the first organization that comes to mind, but they’re coming to the region this weekend so you can get to know them. Ten of the Society’s members present engraved intaglio prints and discuss the impact of early American artist-etchers beginning Saturday at Washington Printmaker’s Gallery in Silver Spring.

(Jan. 5-8) Mose knows
Jazz master Mose Allison grew up in Mississippi before making a name for himself in New York, which may be why his music is infused with bluesy sounds as much as the jazzy ones. The revered vocalist and legendary lyricist known as “the William Faulkner of jazz” has been covered by The Who, Van Morrison and The Clash. He plays Thursday through Sunday at Blues Alley in Georgetown.

(Jan. 4-29) That thing
The Religion Thing premieres at Northwest Washington’s Theater J today. The comedy finds a picture-perfect D.C. couple taking a hard look at some hard truths after a close friend finds Jesus and loses most everything else.

Music: “My Brain” by Mose Allison
