Nov. 17: Low Cut Connie
"Pathologically fun." That's what the the New York Times says about the talents of New York-based rock band Low Cut Connie. The group plays a free show tomorrow night at The Dunes in Columbia Heights and has just released its second album, filled with the sounds of early rock-and-roll. Tomorrow night's 8 p.m. show is part of a series of up-and-coming New York bands playing free shows in D.C.

Nov. 16-Mar. 2: Luces y Sombras
To make it an evening of free events, check out the Mexican Cultural Institute's exhibition, Luces y Sombras, showing off 14 American photographers working in Mexico. Among the most well-known images on display are the twenty prints from Paul Strand's Mexican Portfolio, elegant and haunting photos of the Mexican countryside taken in 1933. The exhibition runs through March 2.

Music: "Boozophilia" by Low Cut Connie.
