There will be a D.C.-inspired opening reception tonight and tomorrow from 6 to 10 p.m., where guests can enjoy music by DJ Sequoia, hors d'oeuvres provided by Farm to Feast, and an open bar featuring local beer from Three Stars Brewing Company. The advance tickets are sold out, but you can still snag tickets at the door for $15.

After performing at SXSW in Austin, Spanish musician Remate is coming to D.C. The multi-instrumentalist will be at Desperados Burgers & Bar on U Street at 8 p.m.
