To Do This Weekend: Laugh, Live, Love (In That Order)

Once again, there are plenty of events to choose from this weekend. Here are a few options:

Laugh. Kristen Schaal, best known as the Flight of the Conchords’ only fan, will be performing her stand-up comedy act tonight at Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse (2903 Columbia Pike). Tickets for the 9:45 show cost $20. She has two additional performances scheduled for Saturday night.

Live. On Saturday, get free home improvement advice at the Arlington Home Show and Expo. There will be 14 free classes and presentations from 60 exhibitors. The expo is being held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Walter Reed Community Center (2909 16th Street South).

If the home show put you in the mood for redecorating, head over to The Arlington Urban Village Market. Talking place in the Courthouse parking lot from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the market will feature housewares and other furnishings for sale.

Also on Saturday, the Arlington Community Federal Credit Union is holding a grand opening celebration for its new Columbia Pike location (5666 Columbia Pike). There will be free food from Ledo Pizza, credit report and auto buying seminars, games for the kids — the whole grand opening treatment — from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Love. On Sunday the Arlington Philharmonic will be performing music composed by “the giants of German romanticism.” The free spring concert is being held between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. at Kenmore Middle School (200 S. Carlin Springs, Rd.). The program includes Felix Mendelssohn’s Incidental Music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Johannes Brahms’ Serenade No. 1.

If your definition of “romance” is a little edgier than classical German composers, Bus Boys and Poets is screening a film that “questions femininity, masculinity, and sexuality in American society as defined in music videos.” The film, “Dreamworlds 3: Sex, Desire, and Power in Music Video,” will start at 8:00 p.m. at Bus Boys and Poets’ Shirlington location (4251 Campbell Avenue).
