Japandroids bring melodic cacophony to the Rock N Roll Hotel in Northeast Saturday.

(June 28-July 15) Hot! Hot! Hot!
It’s hot, and you don’t need a reminder, but Hot! Hot! Hot! is opening today in Alexandria anyway. Del Rey Artisans said the word a few times to a bunch of artists and asked them to come up with anything they wanted. The results are showing through mid-July and will be complemented by salsa dance lessons, action movies, and music.

(June 30) Japandroids
If you don’t break a sweat at Hot! Hot! Hot!, you will at Japandroids Saturday night at the Rock N Roll Hotel in Northeast Washington. The two-piece rock band from Vancouver, Canada makes plenty of noise with a single guitar, a set of drums, and lots of melodic screaming.

(June 28-Sept. 23)
Richard Diebenkorn was big on the less is more approach, too. The abstract expressionist managed to say a lot about time, space, and colors with simple geometric images. Dozens of his large-scale paintings, smaller ones made on cigar box lids, mixed media drawings, and prints are showing at the Corcoran Gallery of Art through late September. The Ocean Park Series features work made while Diebenkorn was hanging out by the beach in Southern California.
