random bits + links

Things to do this weekend: You have through Saturday to see Isabel Manalo's current show at Addison Ripley, Once, Upon. Isabel is a painter and local art blogger; in her most recent Studio Visit post, she spends some time with DC artist and alt-crafter Kristina Bilonick.

In that post, Kristina says that she's wanted to be famous since she was five years old. When I was five, I wanted to be Count Dracula. Maybe one day both of our dreams will come true!

Also on Saturday, from 3:00 to 4:30, you can hear WPA Options curator Anne Goodyear talk about her selections. Options is installed just upstairs from Conner Contemporary, and includes work from fine DC metro area artists like Ding Ren and Jenny Mullins.

On Sunday, of course, it's AAC Open Studios, which I plugged yesterday.

Things to read: On Tuesday, DCist ran this fabulous piece on the legendary Arlington, VA band, Unrest, and the making of their nearly perfect 1993 album, Perfect Teeth.

Also in DCist, Heather Goss reported yesterday on Civilian's upcoming move to the old Warehouse spot, and reflected on the string of closures and dislocations we've experienced in the last year or so. Galleries are on the march! One might even be your neighbor soon.
