(March 2) Session vet takes center stage
Nothing beats center stage, even if you used to back up Bob Dylan, the Eagles, and Carly Simon. Veteran guitarist David Bromberg has released dozens of solo albums since breaking out on his own.

If you’re looking to discover some new dance moves Dance Bethesda brings flamenco, hip-hop, Brazilian, and experimental performances to the Round House Theatre in Bethesda Saturday night.

(March 1-17) Intersections
When you’re looking at the experimental landscape photography of German artist Georg Kuettinger you may notice something’s a little… off.

The results are sure to challenge your perspective until St. Patrick’s Day at Northwest’s Project 4 gallery.
