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

Starting tomorrow you can head to Foundry Gallery in DuPont Circle to see Hot Glass in the City, an exhibit featuring work by 23 National Capital Art Glass Guild members. 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.

Music: "Ellicott City" by Marcus Johnson
