(March 7) Follow the White Rabbits
The Internet has made more music available to more ears than ever before, so distinguishing yourself as an artist or band is pretty important. White Rabbits stands out by divvying up the tasks in a somewhat unconventional fashion. The six-piece has two drummers and three vocalists and still manages to make music that doesn’t sound too busy. Washington’s Black Cat welcomes the rockers from Columbia, Missouri tomorrow night. 

(March 6-April 15) Brother Russia knows how to rock
If you like your musical theater with a raucous spirit Brother Russia opens today at Arlington’s Signature Theatre. A fourth-rate theatre troupe sets up stage in a tent to pay homage to Rasputin, Tolstoy, and Dostoevsky with nothing but rock and or roll.

(March 7-28) Why don’t you come to your senses?
If you’ve never seen a guitar case that can also launch rockets at faceless henchmen, Arlington’s Artisphere is celebrating the work of Texan filmmaker Robert Rodriguez every Wednesday this month. This week brings his debut, El Mariachi, which doesn’t feature the rocket-launching guitar case, but does feature a guitar case filled with guns instead of a guitar.
