(May 18) Buzz Bissinger
If you’re a fan of Friday Night Lights the book, the movie, or the TV series, Buzz Bissinger is the man to thank. The acclaimed storyteller drops by Northwest Washington’s Politics and Prose Friday, but he won’t be focusing on high school football in West Texas. Bissinger reads from his new memoir, Father’s Day. The work covers the discoveries the author made while on a road trip across the United States with his special-needs son.

(May 18-24) Bernie
For a peculiar story from a small Texas town, there’s Bernie, opening tomorrow at Northwest’s E Street Cinema. Bernie is a beloved funeral director who teaches Sunday school and always lends a helping hand-even to the town’s most misanthropic widow. That is, until he murders her and creates the illusion that she’s still alive. The black comedy is based on actual events.

(May 17-July 19) Bethesda brings the jams
Bethesda is basking in warm sunny evenings with outdoor concerts every Thursday through late July in Veteran’s Park. The shows offer a broad selection of the region’s best, including rock, funk, reggae, and Latin sounds. Tonight, it’s the piano jazz of Charlottesville’s Adrian Duke.

Music: “Hill Justice” by The Goat Rodeo Sessions
