(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. The bluesman is just as comfortable leading a big band as he is playing acoustic numbers and he’ll do both Friday night at the Birchmere in Alexandria.

(March 3) Bethesda shakes its legs
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. That’s because the large-scale works are seldom a single image - they’re usually composed of several photos taken at varying angles using various effects. The results are sure to challenge your perspective until St. Patrick’s Day at Northwest’s Project 4 gallery.

Music: “Tongue” by David Bromberg
