July 29: DC's Finest: Marcus Johnson & Sylver Logan Sharp

AARP and Howard Theatre Restoration present DC's Finest: Marcus Johnson & Sylver Logan Sharp, along with opening act Marshall Sims, tonight at 7:30. A jazz keyboardist and pianist, Johnson keeps things funky with his "urban groove" style of playing. Formerly the lead singer of disco-funk band Chic, Sharp is a classically-trained vocalist who blends R&B with pop, jazz, gospel and blues. The concert will be held at The Howard Theatre.

July 30-August 31: Hot Glass in the City

The exhibition features nearly 40 works, all made from glass. But while the medium is the same, the pieces reflect a variety of techniques and artistic styles. You can see for yourself through August 31.
