Captor Warns: ‘Don’t Come Back’ Taliban release video of Bergdahl, tout swap as victory
As a tense-looking Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. forces, one of his Taliban captors leaned in and warned: “Don’t come back to Afghanistan. You won’t make it out alive next time.” Then, the American soldier was led away to a U.S. military helicopter, where he was patted down for explosives or other weapons before climbing aboard. The weekend handover in the desert was documented in a 17-minute video emailed to news organizations Wednesday by the Taliban, which touted the exchange of Bergdahl for ﬁve Guantanamo detainees as a victory, while debate raged in the U.S. over the deal and whether the 28-year-old from Hailey, Idaho, should be punished as a deserter. On Wednesday, Bergdahl’s hometown canceled plans for a welcome-home celebration later this month, citing concerns over its ability to handle the large crowds —

Primary Winners, Losers
Eight states voted in primaries Tuesday, a coast-to-coast vote-a-thon that saw the best race of 2014 so far — the Mississippi GOP Senate primary — extended for three more weeks. I’ve culled some of the night’s obvious and less obvious winners and losers. CHRIS CILLIZZ A (THE WASHINGTON POST ) WINNERS Chris McDaniel: No, the conservative state senator didn’t beat Sen. Thad Cochran outright in the Mississippi GOP primary, but he got more votes than a six-term incumbent and will be favored in a low(er) turnout runoff June 24. McDaniel is now in the catbird’s seat to win the GOP nomination. Joni Ernst: The question going into Iowa’s primary was whether Ernst could break 35 percent and

Mike Rounds: The former South Dakota governor cruised to a win, a huge step toward joining the likes of Joe Manchin, Mark Warner, Angus King and John Hoeven as popular former governors who walked into open Senate seats.
Thad Cochran: He seemed out of his depth on the trail and rusty as a candidate. Now the incumbent senator enters a three-week Mississippi runoff as the underdog. Dick Lugar anyone? Former members of Congress: You really can never go home again. Former California Rep. Joe Baca, D, failed to make the runoff and former Mississippi Rep.

Report: U.S. Should Head For the Moon, Not Mars HEARSAY
“We need to break down that highest, hardest glass ceiling in American politics.” — Hillary Rodham Clinton, in an interview with People magazine. The former secretary of state said she has to consider “what I think is right for me” in weighing a presidential run, but she says many Americans think the nation has “unfinished business” in sending the first woman to the White House.
A review of NASA’s spaceflight program by the National Research Council has concluded that the agency has an unsustainable and unsafe strategy that will prevent a human Mars landing in the foreseeable future. The report, mandated by Congress, says that to continue on a course for Mars under budgets that don’t keep pace with inflation “is to invite failure [and] disillusionment.” The report makes a case for sending astronauts to the moon, an idea vocally opposed by President Barack Obama.

Criminals have long used tattoos as indelible ink on their own bodily rap sheet. And for just as long, police have used them as a way to identify suspects. But only rarely does body art play a pivotal role posited as proof of wrongdoing. Prosecutors trying to convict former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez in a pair of homicide cases could try to use the star’s tattoos against him: They are seeking the artists who worked on Hernandez, saying they could be witnesses. Criminal justice experts, however, say it’s hard for law enforcement to determine whether someone with a tattoo linked to a kind of crime actually did the deed. Hernandez’s right forearm has piqued the interest of investigators, though they will not specify which design they have focused on. Hernandez is accused of fatally shooting two men — Daniel de Abreu and Saﬁro Furtado — and wounding a third in Boston in July 2012. He also is charged in last year’s killing of Odin Lloyd. Photos of Hernandez show he has had ﬁve stars and other tattoo

Should Tattoos Be Used as Evidence?

Teardrops: Could signify the number of people the wearer killed or number of prison stints served.

Stars: Can be innocent, but on some prison gang members, can represent the number of people the wearer killed. (AP)

For all the serious ﬂaws in Syria’s election, it underscored the considerable support that President Bashar Assad still enjoys from the population, including many in the majority Sunni Muslim community. Syria’s conﬂict is often portrayed through one of its many prisms — that of a sectarian struggle, in which overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim rebels seek to topple Assad, who belongs to the minority Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam. Without Sunni support, however, Assad’s rule would have collapsed long ago amid a civil war that activists say has killed more than 160,000.
That support was on display as Syrians voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to give Assad another seven-year term. The election was boycotted by the opposition, and ignored in rebel-held areas. The opposition and its Western allies denounced the election as a farce. While the balloting was stagemanaged, even the president’s staunchest enemies concede that Assad retains substantial backing. “If only minorities were loyal to Assad, [rebels] would have taken the country,” said Wida Saleh, a 35-yearold lawyer and Assad supporter who said she was a Sunni Muslim. “But because [Sunnis] are standing behind him, they have kept Syria standing,” she said.

D.C. Plan Discourages Driving A draft of the District’s $54 billion long-range transportation plan calls for efforts aimed at keeping vehicles off congested streets. MoveDC, which looks ahead to 2040, takes into account projections that the city will add about 170,000 residents in the next 25 years and increase jobs by 40 percent, for 200,000 more people working in the city. (THE WASHINGTON POST ) Pedestrians
The plan recommends more educational campaigns that promote safe pedestrian practices, bus stop improvements, a sidewalk on at least one side of every street, and the expansion of the District’s speed- and redlight camera programs to enforce speed limits, raise the comfort level of pedestrians and reduce pedestrian-related accidents. The plan recommends setting policies to ensure that all new construction includes sidewalks.
By 2040, bike riders would have 200 miles of on-street bicycle facilities. This means more trails, bike lanes and bicycle parking. The plan calls for improvements to road infrastructure so bikes have better access on bridges, busy and complex road intersections such as traffic circles, and the Mall. The Capital Bikeshare system would be expanded so that stations would be within reach of a majority of D.C. residents and workers.
The plan calls for a 22-mile streetcar system and 25 miles of dedicated transit lanes. High-transit commuter corridors such as 16th Street NW and H Street and I Street NW are potential places for dedicated bus lanes. A water-transit system would provide links within the District and between the city and neighboring jurisdictions. Investments in Metrorail include support for Metro’s call for a new Potomac River tunnel between Rosslyn and Georgetown and a new downtown Metrorail loop that separates the Orange/Blue lines and the Yellow/Green lines. It also recommends investments in new Metro station entrances or access points in the downtown core. And it recommends service for at least 18 hours a day in most places and around-the-clock service in key corridors.
The plan for the District’s vehicular transportation system focuses on reducing automobile use or maintaining the current number of vehicular trips. It calls for cordon area congestion pricing, in which vehicles would be charged for downtown access at major entry points.
Sing! Dance! Play! Metro is looking for folks to showcase their talents at Metro station entrances this summer. Singers, dancers, musicians, poets and others can audition for “MetroPerforms!” between 5 and 7 p.m. today at Metro headquarters, 600 Fifth St. NW. Visit wmata.com for details. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Vultures Join Lobbyists on K St. What’s that about birds of a feather flocking together?
Tell people two vultures have made a home at the intersection of K and 11th streets in Northwest Washington, and they will likely ask the same question Charlie Dewitt did on a recent afternoon. “The bird variety?” he wondered. It is K Street after all, renowned for ofﬁce buildings ﬁlled with highly paid, powerful lobbyists who, along with others in the city’s political food chain, are often called scavengers — and worse. “We have vultures and turkeys and other kinds of creatures here,” joked Dewitt, a lobbyist who has worked in Washington for 25 years. As he stood at the corner where the giant birds have been sight-

ed in recent weeks, Dewitt said he hadn’t yet seen them. But he imagined they wouldn’t be at a loss for political roadkill in that location, just blocks from D.C.’s most famous address, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. “There is some dead meat out here. Maybe they’re looking for the White House press secretary,” he quipped, referring to Jay Carney,
who just resigned. First the nation’s capital had its snowy owl. Now, it has its vultures. Both are rare sightings for such a densely populated area. But while the white ﬂuffy night hunters are inspiration for stuffed animals, the black-winged carcass-feeders are ripe for one-liners. They are a political cartoon begging for a caption.
“K Street has been taken over by the lobbyists. I think they smell blood in the air.” — MIK E DUPU Y, FORMER D.C. RESIDENT AND BIRDS OF PREY EXPERT
(A group of vultures, by the way, is called a committee. Have at it). When former Washingtonian and birds of prey expert Mike Dupuy heard the location that the vultures had chosen, he offered this response: “That sounds appropriate.” Dupuy, who lives in central Pennsylvania, said that because only two vultures have been sighted, it’s likely they are breeding. “It sounds like it could be some weird nesting thing where for whatever reason they’ve selected that area to breed,” he said.

At School’s Pride Event, Principal Comes Out
Washington D.C. voters could go to the polls to elect an attorney general within months, after the District’s highest court said Wednesday that the D.C.

Wilson High School Principal Pete Cahall came out to his students as gay at a schoolwide Pride Day event Wednesday, shaking as he said that he had “hid in the shadows for the last 50 years” but was inspired by his students to declare his sexual orientation openly. “I want to say publicly for the ﬁrst time because of your leadership, care and support that I am a proud gay man who just happens to be the principal of Wilson High School,” he said in the packed atrium at the D.C. school.

the District can establish that an election in 2014 is not practically possible, then the election must be held as soon thereafter in 2015 as is practically possible.” The D.C. Council, the court held, did not have the power to overrule a charter amendment passed overwhelmingly before voters in 2010. While the underlying language of that amendment said the ﬁrst election would take place “after January 1, 2014,” the court said that language could not be interpreted as inviting indefinite delays.

Council scheduling a soccer stadium hearing on June 26 — the day the U.S. plays Germany in the World Cup. D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson said Tuesday that four separate committees will have to evaluate and OK the $300 million D.C. United stadium deal before it moves to a final vote.

Through his solo project, Kishi Bashi, the multi-talented singer steps out on his own with a frantic mix of classical music, pop-rock and loopheavy psychedelia. On his second album, “Lighght,” Ishibashi’s music sounds disorientingly chaotic in the best way possible.

Firefly Festival, 2013
There’s something freeing about a music festival. For a day (or more), thousands of strangers come together in the great outdoors with one goal in mind: to have the time of their life watching as much live music as possible. For a couple hundred bucks (or less), you can shuﬄe, Spotify-style, through a wide array of bands and genres. With summer looming, we’ve rounded up the best music festivals within a reasonable driving distance — 150 miles, or just over three hours — of the White House. After all, Sasha and Malia need something fun to do during summer vacation. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)
June 14, noon-midnight
Daylong outdoor festival
Four days, camping optional
Dock 5 at Union Market (1309 Fifth St. NE, Washington), the back lot area of Union Market where The Walkmen played last fall
The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway (1131 Korean War Veterans Memorial Highway, Dover, Del.), which is more forest than raceway
Approximate distance from the White House
2.6 miles. Get there via car or cab (free parking is available in the Union Market lot), a trip on Metro’s Red Line to the NoMa-Gallaudet U stop, or a leisurely stroll (about 50 minutes).
98 miles, a two-hour drive that crosses the Chesapeake Bay. Rock and Bus — a chartered bus ride service — is offering rides from Glen Burnie, Md., to the festival site (see: fireflymusicfestival .rockandbus.com for details). You could also fly from D.C., but that seems silly.
Organized by U Street Music Hall, Union BBQ features DJs and acts you might find at the venue. The biggest names are acclaimed producer Jamie xx (of The xx), avid remixer Kaytranada and indie icons Animal Collective DJing as a group. There’s also a Moombahton Massive Stage, led by the creator of the homegrown dance genre, Dave Nada, performing with his duo Nadastrom.
It boasts what, so far, is the closest-to-D.C. date on Outkast’s reunion tour. Other mass-appeal headliners on the top-heavy lineup: Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson, Imagine Dragons, Beck and The Lumineers. There’s also a formidable roster of late-night shows — college party soundtracker Girl Talk, psych rockers White Denim — making Firefly a round-the-clock jamboree.
Which music festival within 150 miles of D.C. is right for you?
FIREFLY MUSIC FESTIVAL
Food and drink
U Street Music Hall regulars, teenage EDM fans who don’t want to leave the city for their festival fix, people with glowsticks, people wearing stupid T-shirts that inform you how much they <3 EDM and bass, and people on ecstasy. Lots of people on ecstasy.
Anyone and everyone. Firefly skews young (after the headliners, much of the bill is up-and-coming indie rock bands and DJs) but is designed to pull in the average festivalgoer. Sure, there will be plenty of college-age kids in Day-Glo and bros singing along to Imagine Dragons, but the lineup is meant to bring in a diverse mix.
Attendees can munch on BBQ from DCity Smokehouse, tacos from El Rey, gyros from The Greek Spot and gelato from Dolcezza. But the big draw is the return of U Street Music Hall’s infamous pho dog, a 13th Street Meats sausage cooked in Toki Underground chef Erik Bruner-Yang’s pho broth, topped with hoisin, spicy slaw, basil and cilantro.
As in past years, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is setting up a beer bar (housed in an air-conditioned lounge with live-streaming performances) that promises a variety of the Delaware brewery’s beer, including Firefly Ale, a pale ale brewed specifically for the festival.
$40 for a general admission ticket
Four-day tickets for the festival sold out, but you can purchase single-day passes for Thursday ($49) and Friday through Sunday ($109 each). If you plan to camp, a pass costs $149 for up to five people. Parking an RV will run you $299.
None. Everyone is an equal at Union BBQ.
For $699, you can attend the entire festival like a boss, with access to a climate-controlled lounge, special viewing areas, restrooms with AC, private entrances and complimentary massages. Because music festivals should be more like spas. Single-day VIP tickets cost $249, and are available for Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.
Pho dogs, you don’t have to travel far, pho dogs, it features a lineup unlike any festival in the country, pho dogs and, with a 4,000-person capacity, it’s relatively intimate. Did we mention the pho dogs?
A free arcade with vintage pinball, skee-ball and foosball games; a hammock hangout for nap time; and a wooded area called The Thicket where performances are broadcast through headphones, not speakers. Far out.

MADE IN AMERICA FESTIVAL
Aug. 16, gates open at 11 a.m.
Daylong festival organized by Rams Head Group
Two-day, non-camping festival curated by Jay Z
Four days, camping optional but encouraged
Just outside Annapolis at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds (1450 Generals Highway, Crownsville, Md.), which hosts a rodeo this coming Saturday and an annual fair in September
Ben Franklin Parkway (Philadelphia, Pa.), where a Live 8 concert was held in 2005
Oak Ridge Estate (2300 Oak Ridge Road, Arrington, Va.), in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains
32 miles driving, about 45 minutes without traffic. We do not recommend walking.
142 miles, an almost three-hour drive. Alternatively, an Amtrak train from Union Station to Philly’s 30th Street Station takes about two hours, or you could ride Megabus for 3½ hours. Just make sure to book either ride in advance (and secure hotel rooms — you can’t camp in the park).
150 miles, a 3½-hour drive down 1-95 S, US-29 S or I-81 S via Route 66.
Miley Cyrus BFFs (and giant hamster ball aficionados) The Flaming Lips, earlyaughts emo icons Dashboard Confessional, husband-andwife duo Matt and Kim, and Takoma Park-bred singersongwriter Eric Hutchinson.
On Saturday, you can dance to Tiesto, brood during The National and attend a service by Yeezus himself, Kanye West. Sunday brings the current king of summer anthems, Pharrell Williams, partystarter Steve Aoki and an excuse to leave early in Kings of Leon.
A jam-band or classic-rock lover’s dream lineup: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh (with their respective bands and together as Furthur), The Allman Brothers Band, Wilco and many more.

People from Annapolis who don’t want to travel far for a festival, suburban Maryland college students who haven’t gone back to school yet, former emo kids ready for the emo revival, that guy who’s always meant to see The Flaming Lips live.
Sponsors include Fordham & Dominion Brewing Co., Jack Daniels and Finlandia Vodka, so that’s what you’ll be drinking. There will also be local food trucks and vendors on-site.
By far the broadest and most mainstream of the festivals on our list, Made in America has something for everyone, with an equal representation of hip-hop, EDM, indie rock and pop music. Expect that to be reflected in the attendees.
It’s sponsored by Budweiser, so … yeah. Otherwise, there will be the usual food offerings and some gourmet food trucks.
Lots of people in tie-dye. Last year’s inaugural Lockn’ drew a decidedly older crowd of Deadheads and the like. The festival is trying to draw a younger crowd, however, with discount tickets for college students ($180).
There will be beer from hippie-friendly Charlottesville, Va., brewery Starr Hill. Additional vendors — including crafters — have yet to be announced.
$59.50, but general admission rises to $69.50 on Aug. 2. Parking is $10.
Tickets cost $150 for the weekend. Single-day tickets are not being offered yet but have been in the past.
$285 grants you access for the entire weekend; camping costs an additional $69-$199. You can also rent a tent with cots for two people for $549.
$150 (or $175 after Aug. 2) gets you VIP parking, a special entrance, a dinner buffet, bathrooms with air conditioning, reserved (and shaded) viewing areas, and a T-shirt and poster (so you can remember that you were there).
For the one-percenters, a two-day VIP pass runs $499 and offers the typical amenities: a special entrance, a lounge, restrooms with AC, a specially designed water canteen, an official laminate and more perks to be announced.
For hippie high-rollers, a $799 ticket gets you the usual VIP suspects (including bathrooms with flushable toilets and showers!) plus a BBQ party on Thursday, brunch on Sunday, late-night munchies, water, discounted booze, a screen-printed poster and a gift bag with a zombie festival survival kit.
It’s the only festival that got its name by spelling Annapolis backward and is the only one on our list where you can see locally bred pop-punk vets Jimmie’s Chicken Shack.
There will be a concurrent Made in America festival going on the same weekend in Los Angeles, so that’s cool. Really, though, it’s all about seeing West (with the potential of a guest appearance from Mr. Made in America, Jay Z).
The two main stages are located next to each other, so you don’t have to worry about missing any of the action. When one band finishes its set, the next starts on the other stage. You won’t have to move, either — the music pumps out of both stages’ speakers.
Whether you’re going for a whole weekend or just for a day, here are some helpful tips to make your festival-going experience the best it can be:
Invest in a CamelBak (or a similar backpack hydration system). Water at festivals is essential; buying bottled water at festivals is expensive. Most festivals have free water stations, so take advantage by filling a backpack full of sweet, sweet H₂0. Dress comfortably. It’s a festival, not a fashion show. Crocs may look ridiculous, but they’re ridiculously comfy, easy to clean and suitable for grass, dirt, rain or mud. Just don’t get rocks in your Crocs. It’s the worst. Don’t drink (too much). In other words, know your limits and stick to them. (That goes for drugs, too. It’s a festival, there will probably be drugs.) You came to have fun, not to spend all day passed out in your tent or, worse, the medical area. Get a waterproof cellphone case. Rain is always a possibility; you don’t want your phone to get soaked. You’ll also protect against dirt from your sure-to-be-grungy festival hands. Don’t count on that phone working. Cell reception is always spotty when you have thousands of people gathered in one area, so make sure you and your friends set easy-to-find meeting places in case you can’t reach one another. Or you could just say screw it and make new friends. Festival friends are the best friends. If you’re camping, practice setting up your tent at home first. The last thing you want when you’re camping in a field for a weekend is to find out that your tent is missing an all-important pole, or has a hole in it. Bring plenty of cash. The hours spent waiting in ATM lines can be better spent frolicking in the grass, taking a nap, or, you know, enjoying music. R.G.

That sounds nothing like you.
Tom After Tom In “The Edge of Tomorrow,” out Friday, aliens invade Earth, as they are wont to do. But fear not, for Tom Cruise is here to save us all! He does that a lot, as you can see from his previous work.
Right! Eventually, I ended up in San Francisco at Sketchfest and Michael Black came to see it and he said, “I still think you should drop the act and just be yourself.” I said, “It’s just too risky.” He said, “That’s the word — if it feels risky, then chances are you’re making yourself vulnerable, and the way that people tend to react to that is to open up.”
So you ﬁnally took his advice?
‘RISK!’ PODCAST HOST, MEMBER OF ‘THE STATE,’ FAILED HUSTLER
KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
In this film series, Tom Cruise saves us many times from many bad people, often by doing bad things himself. But nothing, not even Tom Cruise, can save you from the DA DA dada DA DA dada DA DA dada DA DA dada Whee-da-dooo! Whee-da-dooo! theme song.
2 ‘Top Gun’ In 1986, Cruise saves us all from the Russians by flying about at high speeds, buzzing towers and killing Goose, his R.I.O. That’s Radar Intercept Officer, which is different than a co-pilot. A co-pilot might have helped Goose not die.
3 ‘Magnolia’ As an inspirational speaker in Paul Thomas Anderson’s 1999 film, Cruise saves men from the evil, evil ways of women, who commit crimes against masculinity like wanting to be thought of as people.
1 ‘Mission: Impossible’
In the mid-’90s, Kevin Allison was among the many stars of MTV’s alt-comedy sketch series “The State.” After the show was canceled in 1995, members like Thomas Lennon, Michael Ian Black and David Wain went on to greater successes, but Allison, who hid behind kooky characters, struggled to find his voice. It wasn’t until 2008, when, for the first time, Allison told a story onstage as himself, that he found it. “My voice just turned out to be my voice,” he says. Shortly after, Allison, 44, started a live show and podcast, “RISK!,” where guests tell true stories they never planned to share. Saturday, he hosts two “RISK!” shows at the Bier Baron. How did you get to the point where you started “RISK!”?
When “The State” was on MTV we did what a lot of comedians do: We got really competitive and we started roasting each other. I was one of the people who suggested that we should have a half hour at the beginning of the day where we’re not joking around, we’re just being sincere in how we’re feeling about life. Was that hard to get a group of
4 ‘Valkyrie’ In 2008, Cruise played a Nazi, but a GOOD Nazi. His Col. Claus von Stauffenberg tried to assassinate Hitler. It didn’t work. Good try, though!
Yeah, it was unusual. We called that check-in. Because I was the only gay member — there were nine straight guys, me and Kerri Kenney — I was the only one who wasn’t hanging out with the rest of the group 24/7. I would head out to have these little perverse adventures in gay New York City in sub-basements. It was Michael Black who started saying to me back then, “You should get onstage and start talking about
this crazy stuff you do.” And I used to say to him, “Hollywood has a way that they expect people to be and I feel like I’m too gay, too kinky, too Midwestern, too friendly and too lapsed but still kind of Catholic.” So for years I hid behind that feeling, that I can’t be myself onstage.
How did the storytelling go?
I was totally connecting with the audience. When you start telling the truth it just opens a Pandora’s box of resonances for people. I decided the next day: I’m going to create a show called “RISK!” where that’s the idea every single week. Will the D.C. shows have a theme?
The theme is “guilty.” Once people get what the show is about, the most amazing things come out. Someone will tell a story where something totally surprising happens where you’re like, Oh my god, life is sometimes more spectacular than a movie. RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)
What did you do instead?
I ended up doing a lot of character monologues. The last solo show was about five characters who had f’ed

Margot Leitman had a live show called “Stripped Stories” and it was all about sex and I said, The riskiest thing I can think of is to tell a story about how I attempted to be a hustler, a male prostitute, before “The State” was picked up. I was really not cut out for that line of work.

‘D-Day: Normandy 1944’: With the 70th anniversary of D-Day on Friday, let’s reflect on the guts it took to storm the beaches of Normandy. It’ll help to see the newest film at the Air and Space Museum. Shot in 3-D Imax, “D-Day” is an excellent primer on Operation Overlord, with visuals stunning enough to impress those already familiar with the military operation. It should be fine for kids 8 and up; the combat is only implied. But we can’t promise you won’t get choked up every time the camera soars above the rows and rows (and rows and rows) of the graves of servicemen who never left France. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY

A Mind-Blowing ‘Tale’ Books Want to become famous in the field of neuroscience? You could go the usual route, spending decades collecting advanced degrees, slaving away in science labs and publishing your results. Or you could simply fall victim to a freak accident. The stars of local science writer Sam Kean’s new book, “The Tale of the Dueling Neurosurgeons,” (which he’ll discuss Saturday at Politics and Prose) took the latter route. Be it challenging the wrong guy to a joust, spinning out on a motorcycle, or suffering from a stroke, these folks sustained brain injuries with bizarre and fascinating results. One man, for instance, lost the ability to identify different kinds of animals but had no trouble naming plants and objects. Another man lost his short-term memory. The result? A diary filled with entries like: “I am awake for the very first time.” “Now, I’m really awake.” “Now, I’m really, completely awake.” Unfortunate mishaps like these have advanced our understanding of how the gelatinous gray mass that (usually) stays hidden inside our skulls gives rise to thoughts, feelings and ideas, Kean says. “Traditionally, every major discovery in the history of neuroscience came about this way,” he says. “We had no other way of looking at the brain for centuries and centuries, because we didn’t have things like MRI machines.” Rather than covering the case studies textbook-style, Kean provides all the gory details. Consider Phineas Gage. You may remember from Psych 101 that Gage, a railroad worker, survived having a metal rod launched through his
“The punchline to Phineas Gage is that he turned into this drunken lout, this criminal, and when you read that you think, ‘Oh that’s what happens when you get brain damage to the frontal lobe. You turn into this terrible person,’ ” Kean says. That turns out not to be true. Historians recently found evidence that, while Gage’s personality did change following his injury, he
Scientists have learned a lot about the brain through the misfortunes of others. Here are a few of the interesting injuries covered in Sam Kean’s new book: KING HENRI II OF FRANCE Accident: Hit with a lance during a joust in 1559
A PATIENT KNOWN AS “K.C.” Accident: Skidded off an exit ramp on his motorcycle in 1981 Symptoms: K.C. wasn’t able to remember any incidents from his own life, but had no problem recalling facts and trivia. We learned: The deep brain structure known as the hippocampus, which K.C. damaged, probably controls access to previously stored autobiographical memories. A PATIENT KNOWN AS “C.K.” Accident: Hit by a car while jogging in 1988 Symptoms: C.K. couldn’t identify any objects, but had no trouble putting names to faces. We learned: The fusiform face area processes faces somewhat independently of other brain areas. S.D.
skull. You might not know, however, that one doctor “shaved Gage’s scalp and peeled off the dried blood and gelatinous brains. He then extracted skull fragments from the wound by sticking his fingers in from both ends, Chinese-finger-trap-style,” as Kean writes in his new book.

went on to lead a surprisingly normal life — in Chile. For eight years, Gage worked as a stagecoach driver on narrow, mountainous trails, a job that required loads of brainpower and social skills. While Gage’s story is one-of-akind, his resilience is typical, Kean says. People routinely recover brain function following grievous injuries, and many go on to lead relatively normal lives. “Even Phineas Gage got better,” Kean says. “That’s really an important message for people to hear.” SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS)

There’s no wrong way to use Three Anoa’s condiments
BRADLEE & POSTMODERN
Anthonios Munaba, left, and Agus Wong operate Three Anoa out of Union Kitchen in D.C.
Three Anoa’s bumbus and sambals are inspired by indispensable condiments in Indonesian cuisine.
HOLLEY SIMMONS (EXPRESS)
Bumbus and sambals are as indispensable to the Indonesian pantry as ketchup and mustard are to the America fridge. And while the Southeast Asian staples are traditionally found in soups, stir-fries, grilled poultry, fish or a curry, the owners behind Three Anoa — Indonesian-born friends Anthonios Munaba and Agus Wong — insist it’s OK to use their traditional condiments any way you see fit, even as a chip dip. “How you apply [them] is up to your creativity,” Wong says. “We don’t want to limit it to the way Indonesians eat [them].” The duo originated their company’s line of bumbus (seasoning pastes) and sambals (hot sauces) out of food incubator Union Kitchen. Their Bumbu Bali has strong red chili and shallot flavors, and their Bumbu Rujak, a sweeter variety with palm sugar, works perfectly as a glaze for barbecued meats. Their Lado Sumatra is full of green tomatoes and chilies and the Mango Sambal combines the sweetness of candlenut (akin to a chestnut) and green mango with fiery red chilies. T he he at le ve l s a re p otent but not
Mandu: Now Serving Insomniacs On Friday, Mandu will launch Anju, a monthly menu of traditional Korean bar snacks available only from 10 p.m.-1 a.m. Chef Danny Lee is partnering with Jonah Kim of Pabu in Baltimore for the inaugural event that will feature dishes like oysters on the half shell with Budae jjigae kimchee cocktail sauce, Korean fried chicken, radishes with uni butter and budae jjigae (a traditional Korean stew). Cucumber-infused soju and makkoli (a spirit made from fermented wheat and rice) will also be available. Feeling sleepy? Catch the pop-up later on the first Friday of each month. HOLLEY SIMMONS (EXPRESS) Mandu, 453 K St. NW; first Fridays, 10 p.m.-1 a.m., $6-$15; 202-289-6899, mandudc.com. (Mt Vernon Sq)
overpowering. “Indonesians will say this isn’t too spicy,” Wong says. The recipe for Bumbu Bali, in fact, mutes the chilies with a large helping of red bell pepper. As for the name, Wong says “anoa” is a rare breed of miniature buffalo found on the island of Sulawesi in Central Indonesia. He and Munaba hope to bring greater awareness to this endangered species. The “three” refers to themselves and the customer, whom Wong and Munaba are reaching out to via specialty groceries throughout the region. Three Anoa products can be found at: Little Red Fox in Chevy Chase, D.C.; Mrs. Green’s Natural Market in Fairfax; Smucker Farms of Lancaster County retail store in D.C.; Bethesda Co-op in Cabin John, Md.; Potomac Gourmet Market in National Harbor, Md.; and at Whole Foods on P Street NW beginning this month.

Not So Old-Fashioned Though relatively new, Japanese whisky finds strong roots in D.C. Think whiskey and you likely think of your buddy Johnnie Walker. But what about Yamazaki and Hakushu? Whiskies from these and other major Japanese brands, like Suntory and Nikka, are quickly finding their way into bars around town. It wasn’t until the early ’90s that Japanese whisky was introduced to the States, and even more recently that more than a few varieties were readily available. “Japanese whisky is only 100 years old as an idea,” says Daikaya beverage director Lukas Smith. “It took Suntory 50 years to make a single malt,” while Jameson has been at it since 1780. The taste of Japanese whisky is most comparable to Scotch, though there are some subtle differences. “Japanese whisky doesn’t necessarily have the same smokiness,” Smith says. Rather, the whisky is often sweeter and more floral. Also unlike Scotch, “the essential flavor profiles remain the same with age,” Smith says. “They remain true to what’s initially going in the barrel.” With the growing availability of Japanese whiskies in the United States, there are more than a few opportunities to sample them in the District, including bars, hypertraditional Japanese sushi shops and modern, contemporary kitchens. Here are three distinct ways to experience Japanese whisky.
Try It Straight In Japan, the preference is to drink whisky with soda or “mizuwari” (which translates as “mixed with water”) and largely not with food. “The taste and aroma of whisky are very strong and don’t necessarily go with Japanese cuisine,” says Sushi Taro co-owner Jin Yamazaki, who offers six varieties of the liquor. He adds that a few heavily flavored
Scott Drewno, executive chef at the Source, recommends pairing Hakushu 12 whisky with his tea-smoked salmon dish.

dishes, like “yakitori” (Japanese skewered and grilled meats coated in a sweet sauce), can stand up to Japanese whisky.
Try It Paired With Food
The Mood and Wind at Daikaya is a take on the Blood and Sand with Hakushu 12.
“Japanese whisky is only 100 years old as an idea. It took [Japanese whisky producer] Suntory 50 years to make a single malt.” — LUK A S SMITH, THE BEVERAGE DIRECTOR AT DAIKAYA
In the U.S., chefs and bartenders are less beholden to Japanese customs. Scott Drewno of The Source has no qualms about pairing the robust aromatics in Japanese whiskies with his dishes. “Many Japanese whiskies have a lighter, smoky malt and more fruit-forward citrus notes than other whiskies on the market,” Drewno says. “I like them paired with scallops, salmon and black cod.” In particular, Drewno likes a Hakushu 12 year with his Sencha tea-smoked salmon, Asian pear puree and yuzu kochu vinaigrette. (The dish is free when you order a $15 shot of Hakushu 12 for the month of June; it’s also available as part of the $135 seven-course dinner tasting.)

At Daikaya, Smith often substitutes Japanese whisky in classic Scotchbased cocktails. His variation on the Blood and Sand cocktail (traditionally made with Scotch, orange juice, sweet vermouth and cherry liqueur) combines Hakushu 12, grapefruit juice, bitter Punt e Mes vermouth and Luxardo Sangue Morlacco cherry liqueur. Dubbed the Mood and Wind ($15), the cocktail takes on a greener flavor thanks to the Hakushu 12, which “brings out some mintyness,” Smith says. TE X T AND PHOTOS

The zombie-themed obstacle race that Max Bawarski started two years ago has been phenomenally popular. His fiancee told him that a dessert-centric race would do even better. “And she’s always right about everything,” says Bawarski, an elementary school physical education teacher. That’s why runners at his newest event, the Ice Cream Race, will be taking on a 5K course that resembles a sundae that’s gone nuts. There will be a slide that’s coated in actual chocolate and a pit covered in banana peels. There will be foam machines to approximate the experience of drowning in whipped cream. And, of course, at the finish line, there will be ice cream (plus sorbet). Want a second chance to be a winner? There will also be ice cream eating and costume competitions.

07.07 What is it about Beyonce and Jay Z that gives them such a hold over the world? Is it that even when a video is released of Beyonce’s sister, Solange, attacking Jay in an elevator, they pull off a classy apology without anyone crying “rehab”? Is it that Beyonce can release a secret album out of nowhere and it becomes the fastest-selling album in iTunes history? Or maybe it’s their expertly directed trailer for their On the Run Tour, which featured cameos from Sean Penn, Jake Gyllenhaal and Rashida Jones. In the end, we can’t help but think it’s because they’re a pair of incredible musicians who know how to put on a great show. And yes, of course, it’s also because we’d watch them perform “Drunk in Love” together all day if we could. For enough money, you can see it up close.

If you don’t count “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” “The Tempest” is Shakespeare’s trippiest tale. It starts with a storm, conjured up by a marooned duke who figured out sorcery in his spare time. In typical Shakespearean fashion, the characters are separated and spend a lot of time looking for each other, some particularly nasty cads hatch murder plots and there are impassioned declarations of love at first sight. Everything ends up happily ever after, even if it takes a little spell-casting to get there. Olney Theatre Center’s under-the-stars staging gives the Bard’s final play an extra-magical sheen.

British folding bike manufacturer Brompton is hosting its 2014 U.S. Championship in D.C. The main draw is a 15K, but the event also features several other races, including a competition for fastest bike folder. Dress code: “All participants, both male and female, must wear a suit jacket, collared shirt and neck tie.” And a helmet, too. V.H. Near RFK

Jason Aldean makes his Nats Park debut accompanied by openers Tyler Farr and Florida Georgia Line, a band that should really have a hyphen or a slash or something in its name. His “Burn It Down” tour is sure to feature many songs about parties, tractors and other rural things of interest. K.P.K.

It’s What’s Outside That Counts When the weather conditions are just right (or when there’s a massive awning shielding you from the sun), dining al fresco in D.C. can be spectacular. These newcomers provide diners with just the right amount of exposure to the elements, with the option of taking things inside should the situation get too heated. H.S. Debuting a 4,000-square-foot gelato factory earlier this year just wasn’t enough for the husbandand-wife duo behind Dolcezza. The couple is set to open a sixth location in June, this time in a former corner deli on 14th Street NW. You’ll find the same quality (sometimes wacky) flavors like Thai coconut milk, avocado, honey and orange, and strawberry tarragon, as well as Stumptown coffee and espresso. New this go around: a sugar high-inducing sundae bar and a to-go window. Sit outside, or seek shelter within the apothecary-inspired interior. Dolcezza, 1418 14th St. NW; dol-
Chef Fabio Trabocchi is not one to scrimp. His Mediterranean-leaning menu at Fiola Mare includes nearly every variety of fish, all prepared in a decadent manner. Among the dishes on offer are lobster ravioli, scallops with truffles and smoked potato gnocchi, and Icelandic cod poached in olive oil. And you better believe there will be seafood towers. Enjoy your fresh catches in the waterfront dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows or outside on the waterside patio. Fiola Mare, 3050
Three words: Get the khachapuri. Compass Rose features sidewalk eats from around the world (like the musttry Georgian dish of bread, cheese, butter and egg) in a dreamy, garden-like setting. Inspired by her international travels with her husband, NPR “Morning Edition” host and former foreign correspondent David Greene, owner Rose Previte took the best bites from every country and serves them in one place. Also worth a try: the lamb kefta from Lebanon and Salvadoran pupusas. Compass Rose, 1346 T St. NW; 202-5064765, compassrosedc.com. (U Street)

Marjorie Meek-Bradley is the breakout star at Ripple in Cleveland Park. Earlier this year, the overachiever was named a semifinalist for the James Beard Awards’ Rising Star Chef award and opened Roofers Union, where the emphasis is on farm-fresh dishes influenced by local producers. Though she’s classically trained, Meek-Bradley doesn’t take herself too seriously: You’ll find chicken wings and onion rings mingling with pig-ear salad and sweetbread po’ boys. Brunch on the rooftop overlooking Adams Morgan is a must. The lobster ravioli is popular at Fiola Mare restaurant in Georgetown.
Great news for fans of Red Derby: Next door to the ridiculously cheap, PBRloving bar comes Lyman’s Tavern, a laid-back joint from Cafe Saint-Ex and Raven alums. A rooftop provides sweeping views of Columbia Heights; on the small back patio, local bands will play as you nosh on bar food and free popcorn. For additional local flavor, one of the six brews on tap will always be from DC Brau, starting with the On the Wings of Armageddon IPA. Lyman’s opened at the begining of this month.

07.22–07.26 Bethesda does its outdoor film series a little bit different: a binge of five films, and the only theme seems to be “awesomeness.” This year they’ve got “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “Citizen Kane,” “Pitch Perfect” and “Top Gun.” That’s some cultural whiplash right there.

The Redskins are coming off a 3-13 season, but there’s still hope. They hired a new coach (Jay Gruden), stole one of the top receivers in the league (DeSean Jackson) from NFC East rivals the Eagles, and quarterback Robert Griffin III, right, is healthy and had a full offseason of workouts to prepare for the 2014 season. What could go wrong? Gruden and Jackson make their Redskins preseason debuts Aug. 7 against the New England Patriots. Washington then takes on the Cleveland Browns at home before playing their final two preseason games on the road. J.T.

After 46 years of performing, you could forgive Billy Joel for getting in a groove and sticking to the same plan when he takes the stage. Not the case: The piano man has been known to mix up each performance with unexpected covers. At Madison Square Garden earlier this year he played songs by the Beatles, and he’s been known to invite friends to the stage (Jimmy Fallon and Adam Levine were two). Who might join him at Nationals Park? Quick — someone check Obama’s calendar for July 26! L.M. Nationals Park, 1500 S. Capitol

Drink, Be Merry. Or Don’t. The theme of most summer festivals doesn’t change from year to year. It’s basically “do [name of activity] while drinking.” The three booze-based events listed here have cheaper tickets for designated drivers, so check the websites if you’re not planning to partake. H.J.M. AND B.M.
The Chesapeake Crab & Beer Festival is an “all-youcare-to-taste” smorgasbord of 50,000 crabs. Both sessions offer four hours to drink beer and eat Maryland’s signature dish, plus live music and, if photos of past events are any indication, a person dressed as a shaker of Old Bay. National
Capital Pride officially kicks off at Union Market on June 6, with events through June 8. The big stuff: The Pride Parade (in its 39th year!) marches through town on June 7, led by author, activist and former NFL player Chris Kluwe; and the Pride Festival, on June 8, has one of the best lineups in recent memory, with Betty Who, Rita Ora and Bonnie McKee among the performers. Multiple locations, through June 8, prices vary; 202-719-5304, capital pride.org.
2014’s Capital Jazz Fest’s roster includes Erykah Badu, John Legend and Dwele. Park your picnic blanket in front of the Pavilion Stage for contemporary jazz and adult contemporary artists, or the Symphony Woods Stage for classic and alternative soul.

The Beer, Bourbon and Barbecue Festival combines basic vices — 60 beers, 40 bourbons, buckets of cholesterol — with moreniche temptations, such as the Daisy Dukes & Boots Contest, competitive bean eating and a cigar tent. New this year is the “Shrine of Swine,” where pork is pulled off a dead pig in full view of diners, who can eat it fresh off the carcass. National Harbor, 137 National Plaza, National Harbor, Md.; June 6-7, $37-$89; beerandbourbon.com.
This year, the Maryland Renaissance Festival takes place in 1543. (Each season is set during a year of Henry VIII’s reign; pay attention to the wandering actors, as they’re all telling one overarching story.) 1543 brought Henry’s final marriage (it ended with his death instead of hers) and an outbreak of the Black Death, so there’s lots of fodder for drama. 1821 Crownsville Road, Annapolis; weekends Aug. 23-Oct. 19, 10 a.m.7 p.m., $15-$22; 410-2667304, rennfest.com.

The Silopanna Music Festival has had a rocky road — it was canceled in its inaugural year because of Hurricane Irene, and in 2013 it didn’t happen for reasons the organizers didn’t specify.

A food festival that’s been around for more than 30 years has got to be doing something right.

It’s Summer!? Stay Inside! Summer people are so annoying, with their sun obsession and their happy frolicking in air so humid you could drink it. Good thing there are plenty of places (including your house) where you can hunker down, blast the AC and wait for the sweet, sweet relief that autumn brings.
Last season of “Orange is the New Black” left off with Piper (Taylor Schilling, below) punching the poop out of Pennsatucky in a storm of alliteration. The runaway hit returns for its second season — released, like the first, in its entirety — to make you stay up too late and repeatedly vow to never be a drug trafficker. K.P.K. June 6,
Canadian comedy troupe Kids in the Hall are here to crush your head. They will crush, crush, crush your head. If you didn’t get that joke, you probably won’t want to go. If you did, you probably already have tickets or are frantically trying to buy them right now. K.P.K. DAR
“The Lion King” didn’t get to be the highest-grossing Broadway show in history by simply rehashing the fabulous 1994 Disney movie. Director Julie Taymor (before she tarnished her reputation with “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”) added elaborate puppetry, riveting choreography and new music to her production, which opened on Broadway in 1997 and won six Tony Awards despite her failure to cast any actual lions. L.M. Kennedy Center, 2700 F St. NW; June 17-Aug.17, $40-$195; 202-467-4600, kennedy-center.org. (Foggy Bottom)
“The Fault in Our Stars” is based on the best-selling young adult novel that made everyone who read it — kids and grown-ups alike — bawl. Buy stock in Kleenex before the film, starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as two lovestruck teens who also happen to have cancer, hits theaters. K.P.K. June 6.

Move over, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. The clear winner for entertainment’s best power couple is Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally. The real-life married duo aren’t just acting when they’re tearing each other’s clothes off on “Parks and Recreation” — they have undeniable chemistry off-screen as well. And while they’ve proven they can hold up impressive comedy careers individually, the pair make gold when they get together. During a few performances last year, for example, they rapped about genitals. That’s one way to keep your marriage alive. L.M.

Ice Cream Jubilee In 2009, Victoria Lai started playing around with inventive ice creams at night after days as a lawyer for the Department of Homeland Security.

French and Japanese flavors play nice at Crane & Turtle, the new restaurant from the team behind Room 11 and Petworth Citizen. Makoto Hamamura (formerly of City Zen) helms the kitchen.

06.13 It’s a sequel-o-rama as two films try to match the success of their predecessors. “22 Jump Street” reunites two-time Academy Award nominee Jonah Hill and zero-time Academy Award nominee Channing Tatum as cops going undercover on a college campus. “21 Jump Street” was the surprise hit of 2012; will the boys catch the same magic and the different bad guys? For kids and those who potty-train them comes “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” It’s five years later, and Viking Hiccup (who rides Toothless, right) is facing the prospect of being chief of his clan. K.P.K. June 13.

Host Hugh Jackman, below, isn’t the only big name at this year’s Tony Awards; nominees include Bryan Cranston, Chris O’Dowd, Neil Patrick Harris and Audra McDonald. Those who don’t follow the goings-on on Broadway are sure to have plenty of questions, such as “there’s a ‘Rocky’ musical?” (yes, the lead actor is up for a statue, and we really hope his date is named Adrian); “there’s an ‘Aladdin’ musical?” (yes; it’s up for Best Musical); and “there’s a ‘The Bridges of Madison County’ musical?” (yes, but it bombed).

Roger Ebert takes his turn on the screen as the subject of “Life Itself,” showing at AFI Docs.
06.14 For the first time, the original manuscript for the “The Star-Spangled Banner” will be on display alongside the flag that inspired it, as part of “Raise It Up! Anthem for America” at the National Museum of American History. As you may recall, Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics in 1814, as he watched the British attack Baltimore’s Fort McHenry. Your history teacher likely failed to mention that Key borrowed the tune from a popular English ditty about drinking and sex. Celebrate the bicentennial of banner and song on Flag Day (June 14) by joining a cross-country singalong of the famously difficult tune, which spans nearly two octaves. And you thought Roseanne Barr’s version was rough on the ears. S.D. National Museum of American History, 1400 Constitution Ave. NW; June 14-July 6, free; 202-633-1000, americanhistory.si.edu and anthemforamerica.smithsonian.com. (Smithsonian)
He may have played a big goofball on “30 Rock,” but Tracy Morgan doesn’t shy away from raunch or controversy on his stand-up tours. In his most recent comedy special, “Tracy Morgan: Bona Fide,” he jokes about plussized women, Paula Deen and his former life as a crack dealer in 1980s Brooklyn. See if he goes too far when he performs at the Warner Theatre. L.M. Warner Theatre, 513 13th St. NW; June 19, 8 p.m., $33.50; 202-7834000, warnertheatredc. com. (Metro Center)
06.18 The D.C. area’s defining film festival, AFI Docs, is back with 84 documentaries from 28 countries. The opening-night film is “Holbrook/ Twain: An American Odyssey,” about Hal Holbrook and the one-man show, “Mark Twain Tonight!,” he’s been doing for 60 years. The closer is “Life Itself,” a portrait of the late Roger Ebert based on his 2011 memoir of the same name. “Shut Up and Play the Hits,” about LCD Soundsystem’s 2011 farewell concert at Madison Square Garden, will screen outdoors in downtown Silver Spring. Smaller films that look interesting include “112 Weddings,” in which a videographer tracks down some of the couples he filmed on their special days; “Back on Board,” about Olympic diver and gay rights activist Greg Louganis, below; and “Ivory Tower,” an examination of the rising cost of higher education and whether a college degree is even worth the price. Brace yourself, Sallie Mae. K.P.K. Various locations in Silver Spring and the District; June 18-22, prices and times vary; 301-495-6720, afi.com/afidocs.

Paul McCartney had a life after the Beatles, you know. In “Man on the Run,” Scottish rock journalist Tom Doyle writes about Sir Paul’s time with Wings while they recorded the album “Band on the Run” in the 1970s. That time included drug busts, public feuds with former Beatles and, eventually, a return to the top of the charts. B.M.

summer guide An Opener Mind Katy Perry’s a pop princess, but she clearly doesn’t discriminate against other genres, as she shows with her diverse choices of opening acts. Listening to each opener — including those on her current “Prismatic” tour — is like tuning the radio to entirely different stations. L.M. Verizon Center, 601 F St. NW; June 24-25, 7 p.m., $29.50$153.50; 202-628-3200, verizoncenter.com. (Gallery Place)
If Katy’s the high school cheerleader, country singer Kacey Musgraves, who’ll be joining her in August, is the girl from the wrong side of the tracks. “If you ain’t got two kids by 21, you’re probably gonna die alone/ at least that’s what tradition told you,” she sings on “Merry Go ’Round,” her Grammy-winning single. Blessed with Alison Krauss’ angelic voice and Miranda Lambert’s attitude, she’s more than able to lead her genre into a new era. Not your average dance music group, Capital Cities, who will (appropriately) open for Perry on her D.C. stop, seems to enjoy the space between genres. Their hit single “Safe and Sound” reached the top of Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart, makes copious use of big-band horns and feels right at home on a house music station. Quite the musical handful.
Indie duo Tegan and Sara went considerably poppier on their last outing, 2013’s “Heartthrob,” throwing in catchy hooks and danceable beats that make the duo more at home with Katy than previous albums might suggest. Though you shouldn’t expect the sisters to wear cupcake bras when they join Perry for the tour’s final North American leg, it’s clear they’re slowly dipping their toes in the waters of pop radio.

In a media landscape awash with supernatural dramas, HBO’s “True Blood” has always managed to be bloodier, snarkier and sexier than its competitors. Season five was panned; the next was praised as a return to form. So the seventh and final season should at least be interesting, especially given the sixth-season finale’s cliffhangers: Sookie (Anna Paquin, left) was burned to a crisp, Eric was burnt to and Hep V vampires were descending on the town. And that, world, is how you handle spoilers. L.M. June 22, HBO, 9 p.m.

Can’t wait until August to watch Peter Capaldi, the new Doctor on “Doctor Who,” in action? He’s the baddie in “The Musketeers,” which follows the famous trio as they’re all for one and one for all and all that good stuff. For 10 weeks, at least.

So after the death of his only son, Will applied for a coat of arms to ensure his family’s place in history.

summer guide The Capital Fringe Festival feels a little bittersweet this year, as the theater organization bids farewell to its New York Avenue performance space, Fort Fringe. What better way to say goodbye than with an 18-day celebration of the city’s most vibrant experimental theater? Getting in on the fun takes two steps: Buy a Fringe button as your pass for the whole shebang, then tickets to the specific performances that tickle your fancy. Fringe is good for nothing if not variety: Last year included a rock opera about the War of 1812 and “& Afterwards,” a play about Dupont Circle’s Kramerbooks L.M. Fort
Would you prefer to be the rat or the scientist? Would-be lab animals can scurry through a 61-by-61-feet labyrinth at the National Building Museum this summer, while the more clinically minded can watch from the second-floor balcony. “The BIG Maze,” which was designed by and named after the BIGBjarke Ingels Group, has birch walls that gradually get lower the closer you get to the center. The idea is to make it easy to review your path and find a way out. Fans of the Danish design firm who can’t stand labyrinths since that freaky 1986 David Bowie movie, relax: The National Building Museum will feature BIG in a maze-free exhibit starting in October.

Whether it’s the 85-foottall explosion of jagged color at National Harbor or the delicate, 9-foot-tall gate inside the National Cathedral, Albert Paley’s expressive works enliven D.C.’s staid landscape. At “American Metal: The Art of Albert Paley,” you can appreciate the sculptor’s career to date. The exhibit will showcase 75 objects, starting with Paley’s early jewelry and ending with a few of his recent steel monoliths. The red thing pictured at left is in there somewhere, too. S.D.

Halloween will be a ways off when “Carrie” comes to Studio Theatre, but it’s never the wrong season for some campy horror. Stephen King’s tale of telekinetic Carrie, who dispatches her high school tormentors in a prom night blaze, comes to the stage in this rock musical.

From Bonnie and Clyde to World War II to the oil business, “Wayfaring Stranger: A Novel” follows the fictional Weldon Avery Holland through a chunk of the 20th century. In the hands of Edgar Award-winning mystery writer James Lee Burke, the thriller promises to have the sinister edge missing from the similarly plotted “Forrest Gump.” B.M. July 15, Simon & Schuster, $28.
Hey, Terps fans. Been missing Alyssa Thomas?

If you’ve been bitter all year that you missed out on Woolly’s Helen Hayes Award-winning production of “Stupid F--ing Bird” that ran last summer, you’re in luck. The theater is reuniting the cast and crew for round two. It’s a modern spin on Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull,” and like that 19th-century play, it tells the story of a moderately successful writer struggling with the meaning of art. As the title implies, it takes more than a few liberties with the language. L.M. Woolly Mammoth Theatre, 641 D

The king of the water, air and now the subtitle, “Sharknado 2: The Second One” is ready to whirl and bite its way back to the small screen. Last year’s bizarrely popular TV movie is back with its B-list cast (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are both returning; Vivica A. Fox and Mark McGrath are among the sharknado newbies) and a simple-tounderstand plot: There are sharks. In a tornado. But this time they’re in New York. It’s important for any sequel to further its characters’ development.
08.18–08.21 For her upcoming installation in the Sackler Gallery pavilion, Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota asked people to send her their shoes and stories to go along with them. Over the course of four days, museumgoers can watch as she uses those items and four miles of red yarn to weave a web of memories, some mundane, others extraordinary. Example: One note in a past installation was from a wheelchair-bound man who sent his shoes to Shiota when he realized he would never walk again. S.D. Arthur M.

2013’s “The Purge” concentrated on a family trapped in their house on the one night of the year when all crime is legal. “The Purge: Anarchy” follows a couple whose car breaks down on the fateful evening. AAA is never there when you need them! Especially when you need them with an ax. June 18 also brings “Planes: Fire and Rescue” in a fruitless attempt to wrest your children’s attention from “Frozen.” K.P.K. July 18.
The latest entry in the superhero wars is “Guardians of the Galaxy,” inspired by the offbeat comic book and storming into theaters on Aug. 1. How offbeat, you ask? One of the Guardians is a sentient raccoon named Rocket. For something a little more normal, there’s “Get On Up,” based on the life of James Brown. Chadwick Boseman, whose big break was the Jackie Robinson biopic “42,” stars. K.P.K. Aug. 1.

“The Killing” just refuses to die. The murder-mystery was canceled by AMC twice — once in 2012 and again last year — but Netflix helped revive it both times. This installment, in which Detective Linden (Mirielle Enos, below) and her partner Holder (Joel Kinnaman) investigate a death at a military academy, is said to be its last — although we’ve certainly heard that before. L.M. Aug. 1, Netflix.
Whether their hero is Buzz Aldrin, Neil deGrasse Tyson or the Mohawk Guy, fans of space exploration will want to check out National Geographic’s latest eye-popping book, “Mars Up Close.” With 250 photos from the Curiosity mission, the tome is a travelogue for a place you can’t go … yet. Author Marc Kaufman, who was embedded at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory for two years, explains just how hard it is to land a $2.5 billion robot on a planet 35 million miles from Earth. But wait, there’s more! A National Geographic Live! event on Aug. 5 features Kaufman and four of the NASA scientists behind the Curiosity mission. And the book ties into the National Geographic Museum’s free “Mars Up Close” exhibit, which shows visitors what the Red Planet really looks like using video, photos and interactive exhibits. It also has a full-scale model of the Curiosity Rover. B.M. Book event: 1600 M St. NW; Aug. 5, 7:30 p.m., $24; 202-857-7700, nglive.org/dc.

08.15 Based on the Lois Lowry novel that was doing dystopia long before “The Hunger Games,” “The Giver” is about a perfect society that isn’t so perfect and Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), the boy who figures that out.

Turtle Power attempts to reign supreme as “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” slices and dices its way into the box office. So, please, if you take your kids to see this movie and they absolutely must have a pet turtle, make sure you keep them (the turtles) away from the nuclear waste. K.P.K. Aug. 8.
You’ve got to hand it to Stephen Sondheim: He got his inspiration from pretty weird places. His 1984 musical “Sunday in the Park With George,” which comes to Arlington’s Signature Theatre on Aug. 5, dramatizes Georges Seurat’s creation of famed painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” It’s not just counting brushstrokes: The narrative covers an illicit affair, a 1980s technological art marvel and a time jump of a century. Who says art history has to be dull? L.M. Signature Theatre,
4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington; Aug. 5-Sept. 21, $70-$90; 703-820-9771, signaturetheatre.org.
If there’s one reason to complain about 1987’s “Dirty Dancing,” it’s that there should have been more dancing. There’s the famous lift at the very end, but who didn’t want to see more of Patrick Swayze’s character, Johnny, shaking it? We’ll get our wish when the musical version stops at the National Theatre. Let’s review the major plot points: Baby, played by Jennifer Grey in the original, is on vacation with her parents at a resort in the Catskills. She falls for dance instructor Johnny. A few lessons and embarrassing talent show performances later, it’s happily ever after. Recommended for anyone who’s ever been wrongfully put in a corner.

When Dynasties Collide
QUIZ International Team of Mystery
Rarely does a sport’s league have two coinciding dynasties, but this year’s NBA Finals features teams with future Hall of Famers who have won multiple championships. The Spurs are the dynasty that just won’t die, while the Heat have made four straight NBA Finals. With the Heat’s stars possibly opting out to become free agents this summer and the Spurs’ stars nearing retirement, this could also be the end of two eras. Here’s what one more NBA title would mean to each team’s legacy. JEFFREY TOMIK (E XPRESS)
NBAE VIA GETTY IMAGES/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION
More than half of the Spurs’ roster is originally from outside the continental U.S. See if you can match the player with his homeland (two countries are used twice):
San Antonio Spurs Dynasty began: 2002-03. Tim Duncan won a ring with coach Gregg Popovich in 1999, but 2003 brought the first title of the Duncan-Tony Parker-Manu Ginobili era. Legends: Duncan is the best power forward to ever play the game. The two-time MVP and four-time NBA champ has played in the fourth-most playoff games in league history. Parker and Ginobili, who combined have made fewer All-Star games than Chris Bosh, have sacrificed stats for the betterment of the team and both deserve to make the Hall of Fame when they decide to hang it up. The others: When the Spurs last won a title, in 2007, they did it with Michael Finley, Bruce Bowen and Robert Horry. The one holdover from that team — outside the Spurs’ Big 3 — is Matt Bonner, who played just 25 playoff minutes that year. The latest installment of Spurs others are a big reason they
made it to back-to-back Finals, though. Kawhi Leonard’s the defensive specialist, Danny Green’s the sharpshooter and Boris Diaw’s the crafty veteran. What one more title would mean: During this playoff run, the Spurs’ Big 3 broke the NBA record held by the “Showtime” Lakers’ Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Cooper for postseason wins as a trio. With one more title, the Spurs could have the longest-spanning NBA dynasty in league history. The Big 3 would have won titles 11 years apart, and Duncan would have championships 15 years apart and in three separate decades. In comparison, Johnson’s five titles spanned nine seasons in the ’80s, Michael Jordan’s six titles spanned eight seasons in the ’90s, and Bill Russell’s 11 titles spanned 13 seasons in the ’50s and ’60s. The Spurs’ longevity is an eternity in the free agent era of sports.
By the Numbers
231 Regular-season wins by the Spurs since 2010-11 — the most in the NBA in that span.
224 Regular-season wins by the Heat since 2010-11 — the second-most in the NBA in that span.
49.7% Field goal percentage of the Heat this postseason — best in the league.
48.2% Field goal percentage of the Spurs this postseason — secondbest in the league.
Miami Heat Dynasty began: 2010-11. When LeBron James took his talents to South Beach, joining Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, something special was formed in Miami. The Heat lost in the Finals to the Mavericks in the Big 3’s first year together, but they’ve won the past two titles and have now made four straight Finals. Legends: James is quickly climbing the ranks of best ever. At 29, he’s already a four-time MVP and two-time NBA champ. Michael Jordan turned 30 a few months before winning a third title and taking a baseball sabbatical. Wade, who has three rings, is a surefire Hall of Famer, and Bosh is often overlooked despite being a nine-time All-Star. The others: It’s hard to consider Ray Allen, who has made more 3-pointers than anyone in NBA history, an “other,” but that’s what he is at this point in his career. Still, he’s capable of making huge shots,
as he did to force overtime in Game 6 of last year’s Finals. Aside from Allen, Miami has veterans Rashard Lewis, Shane Battier and Chris Andersen coming off the bench. But Miami is much more reliant on its Big 3 than the Spurs are on theirs. What one more title would mean: The Heat would be the fourth different franchise in NBA history to three-peat (after the Lakers, Celtics and Bulls). Another title would also pad James’ already-impressive résumé. If he were named NBA Finals MVP for a third consecutive year it would put him in a pretty illustrious group. Only Jordan, Duncan, Johnson and Shaquille O’Neal have won three Finals MVPs, and only Jordan and O’Neal did it three times in a row. If they win and the Big 3 decide to return next season, the Heat would be in position to become just the second team in NBA history to win four straight titles.

Starting off strong, the Nationals infielder held a .316 batting average at the end of April. But the month of May wasn’t kind to Rendon, who recorded just 21 hits in 99 at-bats and watched his batting average reach a season-low .251 on May 28. Like any streaky hitter, Rendon is showing signs of snapping out of his funk; he hit one home run against the Rangers and another against the Phillies in the Nationals’ three games prior to Wednesday. Despite the sluggish May, Rendon entered Wednesday’s game

Anthony Rendon entered Wednesday with seven homers and 29 RBIs in 2014.
leading Washington in runs scored (37), plate appearances (245) and triples (four). “Overall, yeah, it’s been ﬁne,”
he said. “But I’m only worried about now.” Rendon started breaking out of his slump during last weekend’s Rangers series. Going without a multihit game since May 6, Rendon got two or more hits in backto-back games. In Saturday’s contest, Rendon went 4-for-5 with a home run, three runs scored and one RBI. “He works really hard at his craft,” manager Matt Williams said. The Nationals are 9-4 this season when Rendon posts two hits or more in a game, and they’re 6-1 when he hits a home run. Rendon, 23, is still learning how to manage the struggles of the game at the highest level. “It’s just trying to figure it out,” he said. “It’s like when you get sick. You don’t know why you got sick, but you know you are.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Rendon Shaking Slump California Chrome will attempt to be the first Triple Crown winner since 1978.
California Chrome Made 3-5 Favorite for Belmont Horse Racing California Chrome was made the 3-5 early favorite on Wednesday to win the Belmont Stakes and become horse racing’s 12th Triple Crown champion. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner will break from the No. 2 post under Victor Espinoza on Saturday at Belmont Park in New York. Eleven Belmont winners have come out of that post, the last being Tabasco Cat in 1994. California Chrome will be listed No. 2 in the betting program, the same number as 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat, who won the Belmont Stakes by a record 31 lengths while setting a track record for the 1½-mile race that still stands. Wicked Strong was the 6-1 second choice and drew post No. 9. The colt ﬁnished fourth after an

Robert Griffin III throws a pass on Wednesday during practice at Redskins Park.
RGIII Says Full Offseason Of Work Is ‘Very Valuable’ Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III is getting a full offseason workload this year after missing the Redskins’ offseason practices last year while working his way back from knee surgery. Griffin said Wednesday that he has an appreciation of what that means. “You always understand the value of the offseason,” Grifﬁn said following organized team activities, or OTAs, at Redskins Park. “That’s when you build your foundation to get ready for the season. When you have a hand dealt to you where you don’t have an offseason, you don’t use it as an excuse. That was the message that was trying to be sent last year.” Former Redskins coach Mike Shanahan shut down Grifﬁn for the ﬁnal three games of last season, saying at the time that he wanted to avoid Grifﬁn being hurt and missing another offseason. Grifﬁn said at the time that he was disappointed with the decision and wanted to play but accepted Shanahan’s
Meanwhile … “Super Bowl 50” just looks better than “Super Bowl L.” With the unbalanced L in line for the 2015 season, the NFL decided to scrap the Roman numerals for a year. The championship game in Santa Clara, Calif., on Feb. 7, 2016, will be known as “Super Bowl 50.” Starting last April, NFL executives viewed more than 70 potential logos for the 2016 game. They found it’s hard to build an attractive image around what league vice president Jaime Weston calls “the lonely L.” (AP)
authority in the matter. Now he’s getting a full offseason under the team’s new head coach, Jay Gruden. “Obviously just spending more time with your teammates out on the ﬁeld doing drills,” Grifﬁn said. “I was out there last year but I wasn’t able to do the seven-on-seven teamtype things and make the adjustments at the line. So it’s very valuable. I’ve never denounced that.” MARK MASKE (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Year contract extension quarterback Colin Kaepernick received from the San Francisco 49ers.
ESPN reported the deal is worth more than $110 million. Kaepernick led the 49ers to their first Super Bowl in 18 years after the 2012 season — losing by three points to Baltimore — and then to the NFC championship game last season, a three-point defeat to the Seattle Seahawks. (AP)
Briefly, and only briefly, Rafael Nadal was in a difficult spot in the French Open quarterfinals. For the ﬁrst time in this year’s tournament, the eight-time champion dropped a set. And Nadal’s opponent, David Ferrer, was the runner-up at Roland Garros a year ago — to Nadal, of course — and he also beat Nadal on clay the last time they played each other. So how did Nadal handle this test? Perfectly. From late in the second set, he won 10 games in a row, and 13 of 14 the rest of the way, to come back and beat Ferrer 4-6, 6-4, 6-0, 6-1, setting up a semiﬁnal Friday against Wimbledon champion
DAN ISTITENE (GETTY IMAGES)
EVAN VUCCI (AP)
Rafael Nadal defeated David Ferrer in the French Open quarters Wednesday.
Andy Murray. “At the beginning,” Nadal acknowledged, “David was playing with a higher intensity than me.” The route Murray took during his 6-4, 6-1, 4-6, 1-6, 6-0 vic-
tory over No. 23 Gael Monﬁls of France was far more circuitous, ﬁnishing right on the cusp of dusk. In front of a crowd loudly pulling for Monﬁls, Murray was terriﬁc at the outset, mediocre in the middle, then closed on a high. Murray raced through the ﬁfth set in 24 minutes, winning 24 of 31 points. HOWARD FENDRICH (AP)

An Unlikely Pair
It’s true: Cameron Diaz is dating musician Benji Madden 24
Serving The Time of Their Lives
The women’s federal prison of ‘Orange Is the New Black’ is populated with a wildly varied group of characters played (alongside series star Taylor Schilling) by TV’s most diverse cast of actors. As this Netflix series shot its second season last fall on its Queens, NY, soundstage, a visit to the all-too-gritty-looking prison set found several of these actresses delighted to be serving time on this groundbreaking drama (whose 13 new episodes are available for streaming on Friday). FR A ZIER MOORE (AP)
Keep the Bleeps On his HBO show “Last Week Tonight” (11 p.m. Sundays), comedian John Oliver can say nasty words without “that bleeping noise” that masked his swears on “The Daily Show.” That’s because Comedy Central (and other basic cable channels) impose a modicum of standards while premium cable lets people cuss it up. Oliver says he’s thrilled his swears are being heard. I’m not. There’s By Marc nothing brilliant about Silver using the “F” word. Anyone can say it! Sure, it has shock value and can create humor when uttered in an unexpected context. But to my ears, a bleep is funnier. It reminds us that the “F” word and its obscene kin cross a societal line of what’s OK and what’s not, even in the anything-goes 21st century. When Jon Stewart is bleeped for saying “The good people of New York do not give a [bleep]” about efforts to make yogurt the state snack, the bleep makes the joke funnier. We all know what he’s saying — and that he shouldn’t be saying it. Besides, there are better ways to convey the idea of cussing. I [bleeping] love Tina Fey’s “What the what!?” Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
Kate Mulgrew aka ‘Red’ Reznikov
Danielle Brooks aka ‘Taystee’ Jefferson
Samira Wiley aka Poussey Washington
Uzo Aduba aka ‘Crazy Eyes’ Warren
TV veteran Kate Mulgrew (“Star Trek: Voyager,” “Warehouse 13”) plays “Red” Reznikov, an inmate who was once part of New York’s Russian mob. “The hardest part of the show was finding my character before they said ‘Action!’ the first day,” she says. “You have to be able to show her toughness and, through her toughness, her heart — and you had to show it from the first shot.” She did, and ever since, it’s been a blast for Mulgrew. “This is not a vanity role,” she acknowledges. “But I’m of an age now where none of that is as important as it once was. To find a role this rich, nuanced and specific is absolutely joyful for me. It’s liberating.”
Taystee is Danielle Brooks’ first big role after graduating from the Juilliard School. Hers is not a vanity role, either. “There are times when I’m like, ‘Can we please do my eyebrows? Can I get a little more foundation?’” says Brooks with a laugh. “But I truly enjoy the freedom of coming to work, not having to wear Spanx or extensions, to just be me. You can’t hide behind anything here. It’s really freeing.” She wants her audience to identify with Taystee, no matter how unrelatable her character might seem. “We all cry, we all bleed, we all hurt,” Brooks declares. “I want everyone to see Taystee, who they feel so far away from, and realize: ‘I’ve felt like her before.’ ”
Growing up in D.C., Samira Wiley, who plays Taystee’s friend, the jokester Poussey Washington, knew from childhood she wanted to be an actress. “But I couldn’t necessarily see where I might fit in,” she says. It was clear there weren’t a lot of black women snagging complex roles on TV. On “Orange,” she plays a character whose sense of humor can’t be contained. Wiley knows the feeling. “There’s something in you so strong you can’t suppress it: ‘I want to do this This makes me happy.’ “Now, everything that’s happening for me with this show is more than I could have dreamed of,” she says. “It’s nice to be part of that surprise.”
Uzo Aduba didn’t get the “Orange” role she auditioned for. (Don’t even ask what it was: Aduba won’t reveal what part she almost played.) Then she learned she had been offered the part of the unstable, sometimes feral “Crazy Eyes” Warren. “That was exciting,” Aduba says. “But at the same time I’m wondering: What was it about my audition that made them think, ‘She’d make a great Crazy Eyes’?” After all, this is a character, Aduba says, “who has an innocence about her like a child — except children aren’t SCARY! But when I tried her on, it felt like the right part for me. I felt right at home.”
Lorraine Toussaint aka ‘Vee’ Parker Lorraine Toussaint, whose credits include “Saving Grace” and “Friday Night Lights,” claims to have “fallen in love” with the character she plays, “Vee” Parker, a charismatic former drug dealer who used kids as her mules. “It’s an interesting love affair,” she allows. “I get to dance with my shadow self. I get to sit in the backseat watching Vee drive the car, and she drives fast and dangerously. I get to be surprised by who she is and
what she does, because I’m seeing her from the inside out. “I think it’s more uncomfortable for the people around me,” she adds. “I find myself apologizing to other people on the set when I’m in my prison garb.” Toussaint, who is joining “Orange” with Season 2, admits she didn’t know the show when the role came along. “I’m only now catching up on Season 1,” she reports. “It’s VERY good.”

“Hope @pharrell is #happy with his ignorance because Natives are #nothappy seeing those who earned their feathers being disrespected.”
“So J.J. Abrams is going to rip our arms out of their sockets if people keep leaking photos?”
@JOHNNIEJAE is disappointed in the cover
— COMMENTER GREGINATOR AT EW.COM thinks there’s
of Elle UK’s July issue, in which Pharrell Williams wears a Native American headdress. Fans took to Twitter with the hashtag #nothappy to express their outrage at his use of a sacred item for fashion. In a statement released Wednesday, Pharrell said that he respects “every kind of race, background and culture. I am genuinely sorry.”
something sinister in “Star Wars: Episode VII” director J.J. Abrams’ plea that people stop leaking set photos. Abrams on Wednesday tweeted the photo above of a note that read “I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie.” The note is placed on a chessboard
used by Chewbacca in “Star Wars: A New Hope” — and it’s not wise to upset a Wookiee.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) It is best that you put yourself in fine array, as others will be judging you on style as well as substance. This is a strength! CANCER (June 21-July 22) You don’t want to borrow from yourself as much as you have been in the past; you’re more interested in forging a new, original “you”! LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Others will swing into your orbit — and out again — all day long. There is something about you that attracts all kinds. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) What you see is, indeed, what you will get — at least in most cases. Where love is concerned, get ready for a wild ride.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Take care that you don’t confuse the emotional with the intellectual. Your best bet, in fact, is to get out of your head for now. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You have what it takes to impress someone who is not easily impressed. The results, particularly after dark, are more than you imagined. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You may be haunted by a notion that has recently kept you up at night — but today you’ll find a way to free yourself from it for good. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) There is a certain attraction that cannot be denied, yet you may not be ready to make the changes required if you explore further.
