The Capital Pride celebrations will be capped off by this weekend's parade, but there's plenty to do before that.

Jun. 3-9: Capital Pride
Capital Pride is in full swing, and there are plenty of activities to check out before this weekend’s parade and festival. Tonight you can go to Town Danceboutique in Northwest at 8 p.m. for Music in the Night, an evening of performances and sing-a-longs. Town will also host the Seventh Annual DC Latino Pride Fiesta Dance Party on Thursday night, starting at 10. Or, if you’d rather lie low, you can head to Busboys and Poets on 5th Street tomorrow night for a Women’s Spoken Word open mic event starting at 8:30.

Jun. 3: Punk Rock Karaoke
The Black Cat in Northwest hosts Punk Rock Karaoke tonight starting at 9. Whether you’re feeling The Ramones, The Clash, or The Bouncing Souls, you can mosh on at this evening of tunes, fun, and half-forgotten lyrics. Proceeds benefit Casa Ruby, a multicultural center and safe space serving Latino Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender communities in the D.C. area.

Music: “Somebody to Love” by Vitamin String Quartet
