This is not your typical talk show.

(June 8-10) White Noise
Local artist Tom Block likes to paint and he likes to write. He merges his two passions all weekend at The Fridge in Southeast. Block’s chaotic paintings serve as the backdrop for his play, White Noise, which follows a painter as he travels to Detroit and does battle with some internal madness.

(June 9) Sonic Circuits
A lot of the experimental music being made these days involves computers. A group of sonic engineers works against that trend Saturday at the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center in Silver Spring. Off the Grid is a night of unplugged and battery powered acoustic experimental music. Trailblazers from the District and New York do their best to impress without the help of microphones and PA systems.

(June 8) The Charlie Visconage Show
Most talk shows have microphones and PA systems, but DC has at least one that doesn’t. The Charlie Visconage Show is a homegrown talk show that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The one thing it is serious about is connecting D.C. artists with new audiences. You can get to know a few comics, poets, and musicians tomorrow night at Northwest’s DC Arts Center.
