The Chuck Brown Memorial Park, which opens Friday at 20th and Franklin streets NE, was originally supposed to have a 900-seat amphitheater, but the surrounding neighborhood wanted something quieter. That left the park’s planners with a dilemma: How do you pay homage to the godfather of go-go without making a peep? Jackie Braitman, the Takoma Park, Md.-based sculptor whose design will occupy the park’s northeast corner, says she “tried to capture the idea of movement with the metal fins, and the call-and-response nature of go-go with interactive lights.” Here’s how:
This 16-foot-tall figure represents Brown. Braitman created the illusion of movement by giving the sculpture slats that, like Venetian blinds, seem transparent when viewed straight on, but solid when viewed from an angle. In the final version, one side of the slats will picture Brown leaning forward, holding a mic toward the audience.
Multicolored lights (not pictured) will begin flashing silently as you enter the sculpture. If you play the song “Chuck Baby” on your phone, you’ll notice the lights grooving along to the music. Sync the song to the four large lights near the back of the stage — they represent four descending notes played by a trombone eight seconds into the song.
On Tuesday, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced the birth of the Virginia Oyster Trail, a road-trip itinerary with stops at various oystercentric locations. How creative is this tourism initiative? H.J.M.
Made-up terms: Trail followers will encounter “aqua-artisans,” who are like “agriartisans” but on water, not land.
Originality: There are only two other official oyster trails in the U.S., one in Louisiana and one in Alabama.
Steel circles, about the size of dinner plates (not shown, though one will be near Brown’s feet), will trigger more lights. Two quick taps on a plate might tell a large stage light to blink twice in response. Do it again, and small lights on the floor will twinkle back at you. “We’re trying to encourage you to stay and play with the sculpture,” Braitman says.
Slogan: Virginia Is for Oyster Lovers
Brown’s family asked that this generic guitar be replaced with one more like a Gibson, Brown’s instrument of choice. The metal shop that forged the piece made it with the neck facing the wrong way. Before it shipped, a musician caught the error. “I would have been so dead if Chuck were playing a backwards guitar,” Braitman says.
The piece was originally going to use solar panels to power the lights, but it got moved to a shadier corner of the park. Now, the sculpture is jacked into D.C.’s electrical grid and is sheltered by a canopy that’s more reminiscent of a stage than the solar panels were. S.D.
Go-go to see, not hear
Virginia is for lovers … of not-even-trying slogans
The entire sculpture at Chuck Brown Memorial Park will be painted various shades of brown. “It’s a play on the idea of Chocolate City,” sculptor Jackie Braitman says.
Was this ever a good idea? Organizers of the Cops and Robbers Run, which encouraged participants to come in costume to run through sirens and smoke (to benefit the DC Police Foundation), canceled the race Wednesday, citing compassion for Michael Brown’s family and the Ferguson, Mo., community. R.S.

Eden Center tenants say mall is falling apart
NIH RESEARCH STUDY Rapid Antidepressant Effects of Scopolamine
ENROLLING PARTICIPANTS: CALL ABOUT ELIGIBILITY
NIH researchers seek currently depressed persons ages 18-55, or those persons with bipolar disorder who are currently in a depressive phase, to enroll in this research study. This study is evaluating how the medication Scopolamine (FDA approved for motion sickness) versus placebo can help rapidly reduce depressive symptoms and its eﬀects on memory & attention using neuroimaging. The medication is given intravenously over 7-sessions (inpatient or outpatient) and may include brain imaging and attention and memory tasks to help understand the role of some brain chemicals in depression.
Call: 1-877-MIND-NIH Research Studies Enrolling Participants Call About Eligibility
FALLS CHURCH When the rains came again on Tuesday, the ceilings in the Eden Center shopping mall started to leak, water seeped from the walls and sewage backed up into the kitchens of the mall’s popular restaurants — again. As Suong Nguyen talked about the difficulty of keeping her restaurant clean, a large wet ceiling tile crashed onto a table next to her. The once bustling Eden Center in Falls Church has long been an economic and cultural haven for the D.C. area’s estimated 70,000 Vietnamese-Americans, and is believed to be the largest Vietnamese commercial center on the East Coast. It is also a smorgasbord destination for food lovers of all stripes. Now the smorgasbord is shriveling up: In addition to water and sewage problems, engineers say the subterranean spaces are structurally unsound and that a lack of trash compactors creates overflow and a stench that stagnates the stale air of the mall. More than a dozen tenants have sued the owners, Douglas and Norman Ebenstein of Boca

Many have sued the owners of the popular Vietnamese plaza
More than a dozen tenants have sued the owners of the Eden Center, a popular Vietnamese commercial center in Virginia, over poor conditions.
Raton, Fla., for the poor conditions, but leases signed years ago by unsophisticated tenants apparently insulate the landlords from having to do any repairs. Douglas Ebenstein didn’t return messages seeking comment. He and his father once operated the largest personal injury law firm in Connecticut, but both lost their law licenses in the early 1990s. Even a casual stroll through Eden Center demonstrates that it is falling apart, beginning with a pothole-filled parking lot. Christopher Pham recently closed Wish Diamond and Fine Jewelry after 17 years. “My business is totally destroyed by the condition of the mall,” he said. “The past 17 years I’ve seen a
lot of people go bankrupt.” In addition to monthly rent, Eden Center merchants pay a monthly “common area maintenance” fee. Duyen Truong, who said operating the now-closed Asian Supermarket drove her to bankruptcy, said she was paying $128 per square foot. The average rent in the Falls Church area is about $22 per square foot. Several prime spaces are available in Georgetown now for around $50 per square foot. “I use the term exploitation,” said former U.S. Rep. Anh Cao. “The landlord is using the inability of people to speak English … to basically rob these people of their hard-earned money.” TOM JACKMAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Bob McDonnell testifies in his trial VIRGINIA Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, taking the stand in his own defense Wednesday against federal corruption charges, said his wife, Maureen, seemed uneasy about their new life from his very first day as governor-elect. McDonnell described waking up on Election Day “still running on adrenaline” from his victory the night before. But, he said, his wife didn’t seem to share his feelings. “She was yelling at me about something,” he said, suggesting it might have been about what she was going to wear.
Two arrested after burglary, police chase in Md.
“I could sense some tension about the impending role she was going to face as first lady.” The portrayal of his wife as stressed by their rise to the top of Virginia politics marked McDonnell’s first courtroom utterances as he makes his own case against charges that he sold his office’s credibility for a string of loans, vacations and luxury goods. The one-time prosecutor, state delegate and Virginia attorney general is now making the pitch of his life. Avoiding conviction, and potentially salvaging something from the legacy of a 22-year

Quarantined Liberians in Monrovia on Wednesday clash with police.
Slum quarantine leads to violence In bid to halt spread of Ebola, part of Liberia’s capital is closed off MONROVIA, LIBERIA Violent clashes between authorities and residents of an Ebolastricken neighborhood erupted in the Liberian city of Monrovia on Wednesday as the death toll from the disease continued to climb. Men threw stones at soldiers dispatched to control crowds in West Point — a Monrovia slum that’s been quarantined — and residents tried to charge through barricades in the neighborhood, according to reports. West Point residents woke Wednesday to find riot police blocking roads in and out of their community. People trying to leave by boat encountered an
offshore coast guard patrol. Those living in the West Point slum told Reuters that they weren’t given advance notice about the blockade, which left some without supplies. The community is in “disarray” following the arrival of forces, West Point resident Richard Kieh said. P resident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf ordered West Point sealed off and imposed a nationwide curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. “We have been unable to control the spread” of Ebola, Sirleaf said Tuesday. She blamed the rising case toll on denial, defiance of authorities and cultural burial practices, in which bodies are handled. At least 50,000 people live in West Point, one of the poorest neighborhoods of the capital. (AP/THE WASHINGTON POST)

nation+world Ranking political mug shots Texas Gov. Rick Perry — who pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony abuse-of-power charges — had a lot on the line when he had his booking photo taken: Even if he beats the charges, there’s still that awkward arrest photo that will be floating around the Web. We decided to rank some famous political mug shots.

ANALYSIS: The ranking wouldn’t be complete without Jim “Wait, Is That Hair?” Traficant. It’s a brutal photo. But it didn’t do much harm: He almost collected enough petitions to run on the ballot for a House seat in 2010.

ANALYSIS: Perry’s a good-looking guy, but mug shots rarely do their subjects justice. Darker pictures always make subjects look more guilty, and that’s the case here. Perry’s near-smile expression doesn’t really help.
ANALYSIS: One of Edwards’ assets was that he took a good photo. His mug shot is typical in that regard, though the lighting is a bit harsh. But in the end he looks like a politician in a bad photo, not an accused criminal.
ANALYSIS: DeLay’s booking photo is the gold standard of political mug shots. It’s got the big grin and the absence of any you-are-in-a-policestation indicia. It’s like class-picture day on Capitol Hill.

Attorney General Eric Holder poses for photos Wednesday with students at the Florissant Valley campus of St. Louis Community College in Ferguson, Mo.
Holder: ‘I understand’
Attorney general visits Ferguson, promising a fair inquiry into Michael Brown’s death
FERGUSON, MO. Attorney General Eric Holder swept into Ferguson on Wednesday, meeting with community leaders and promising a “thorough and fair” federal inquiry into the police shooting death of an unarmed black teenager. Before going into an investigative briefing at the local FBI headquarters, Holder said the Justice Department had assembled “very experienced” prosecutors and agents to determine whether 18-year-old Michael Brown’s civil rights were violated when he was shot Aug. 9 by a white police officer. “Our investigation is different” from a parallel St. Louis county probe, Holder said. “We’re looking for possible violations of federal civil rights statutes.’’ Earlier Wednesday, Holder offered a highly personal perspective on Brown’s death and the days of protests it has spawned in this predominantly black community of 21,000 people. “The eyes of the nation and
Attorney General Eric Holder meets Wednesday with State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson, who has been in charge of security in Ferguson.
Meanwhile … A police officer who pointed an assault rifle at people, including a peaceful protester, in Ferguson on Tuesday night and threatened to kill them has been relieved of duty and suspended indefinitely, according to Brian Schellman, a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department. A county police sergeant forced the officer to lower his weapon and leave the area, Schellman said. (TWP)

the world are watching Ferguson right now,’’ Holder said after meeting with students at the Florissant Valley campus of St. Louis Community College and hearing about their distrust of police. “I understand that mistrust,” Holder said. “I am the attorney general of the United States. But I am also a black man.” He relayed stories of being pulled over on the New Jersey Turnpike twice and having his
Dozens killed by landslide in Hiroshima, Japan
car searched. He remembered the time he went to see a movie in Georgetown, and the cops yelled at him, “Where are you going? Hold it!” He was a federal prosecutor at the time. Holder’s remarks, unusual for a federal law enforcement official overseeing an active case, pointed up the urgency with which the Obama administration views the events in Ferguson. The Justice Department investigation has escalated in recent days, with more than 200 people interviewed by agents and prosecutors. The state probe of Brown’s death is also moving forward, as the St. Louis County prosecutor’s office Wednesday presented the first pieces of evidence to a grand jury that will determine if state charges are filed against Officer Darren Wilson, who shot Brown. It could take until October for the grand jury to hear all of the evidence, St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch said. CAROL D. LEONNIG, DAVID NAKAMURA AND JERRY MARKON (THE WASHINGTON POST)
There’s been a historic decline in teen births A significant drop in the U.S. teen birth rate — down 57 percent from 1991 — is being attributed to decreased sexual activity among those ages 15-19, as well as the more frequent use of contraception. But the decline has looked different across states, races and age. JASON MILLMAN ( THE WASHINGTON POST )
By age According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the birth rates for the 10-14, 15-17 and 18-19 age brackets were all at record lows in 2013. The decline has been much greater, though, for girls 15-17, falling 68 percent since 1991, compared to 50 percent for teens 18-19.
By race The steepest declines since 1991 have been recorded among Asian-Pacific Islanders (64 percent) and non-Hispanic blacks (63 percent). Hispanic teens have the highest rate among racial groups but it has fallen 39 percent since 2007.
By state Rates continue to be lowest in the Northeastern states and higher in the South. New Hampshire has the lowest teen birth rates at 13.8 per 1,000; New Mexico records the highest at 47.5 per 1,000.

Obama vows firm response to Islamic State The U.S. stood firm Wednesday in its fight against Islamic State militants who beheaded U.S. journalist James Foley, pledging to continue attacking the group despite its threats to kill another hostage. President Barack Obama denounced the group as a “cancer” and said “we will be vigilant and we will be relentless.” (AP) Not backing down Since the video was released Tuesday, the U.S. military has conducted 14 airstrikes on Islamic State targets in Iraq (bringing the total to 84 since Aug. 8). And U.S. officials said military planners were considering the possibility of sending a small number of additional troops to Iraq. The U.S. also has not ruled out extending military operations into Syria.
Accent of executioner alarms U.K. Video highlights the role of Westerners in Islamic extremism LONDON The beheading of an American journalist at the hands of a London-accented extremist prompted deep reckoning among Britons on Wednesday over the particularly vicious role their countrymen are playing in the destabilization of the Middle East. U.K. security officials have been sounding the alarm for more than a year over the number of foreigners in Syria. The chief of Scotland Yard told reporters last week that about 500 Britons are among the thousands of Westerners who have joined the fight. The government’s concerns have focused on the possibility that fighters could return home, newly radicalized, and carry out attacks in Britain.
But the video released Tuesday showing the execution of American journalist James Foley highlighted how central foreigners have become to some of the most extreme behavior by militant Islamist groups in Iraq and Syria. “Foreign fighters are often used for the most brutal acts because they are the most ideologically motivated,” said Peter Neumann, director of the International Center for the Study of Radicalization. “The locals may

say, ‘That’s not the kind of thing we do here.’ But the outsiders don’t know that.” Security officials say most of the Britons who have left to fight in Syria, and increasingly in Iraq, have joined the Islamic State, the extremist group that took responsibility for Foley’s killing. Neumann said the group probably selected a Brit to carry out the execution both because he was willing and because it knew that his voice would resonate across the West. “They probably picked the Brit because there was no American,” Neumann said, noting that only an estimated 100 Americans have joined the fight in Syria. “It was important for them to have someone who speaks English fluently.” Prime Minister David Cameron told the BBC on Wednesday that British investigators are still trying to identify the executioner

Some Republicans questioned Obama’s resolve in confronting the Islamic State. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Obama’s tone was right but his strategy insufficient. “The strategy should be to launch all-out air attacks in Iraq and Syria to defeat ISIS, not stop them,” McCain said.
and that “it looks increasingly likely that it is a British citizen.” Investigators were attempting Wednesday to discover the masked man’s identity using voice recognition and other clues. “We’re absolutely aware that there are significant numbers of British nationals involved in terrible crimes, probably in the commission of atrocities,” British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said. “Many of these people may seek at some point to return to the U.K., and they would then pose a direct threat to our domestic security.” Security officials have acknowledged that they are struggling to keep tabs on the about 250 Britons who have gone to Syria and come back — despite warnings that they will be arrested upon their return. The Foley video is likely to intensify anxiety here that one or more of those returnees will try to pull off an attack in Europe. “The fear is that this is likely to escalate,” said Ghaffar Hussain, managing director of the Quilliam Foundation, a Londonbased anti-extremism organization. “They will do their best to show that they can get at Western targets. “I don’t think Britain has come to terms with the fact that it’s dealing with a very large-scale problem,” he said.
John and Diane Foley spoke to reporters Wednesday about their son’s passion for journalism.

The second American journalist seen in the Islamic State’s video of James Foley’s execution, who the group said would be executed unless the U.S. halts its intervention in Iraq, was a freelance journalist who was covering the civil war in Syria when he was kidnapped on Aug. 4, 2013. His family chose to keep the information quiet, believing it would keep him safer, but have continued to work with officials to secure his release. DAN LAMOTHE (TWP)

Don’t draft these guys
Nationals reliever Craig Stammen had pitched 9⅓ innings in August, entering Wednesday’s game.
Taxing time for bullpen With all the recent extra-inning games, Nationals relievers are getting a lot of work NATIONALS Winning extra-inning games is exhilarating, but it’s also taxing on a bullpen. Just ask Nationals manager Matt Williams. Prior to Wednesday’s series finale against Arizona, the Nationals were 10-2 in their past 12 games, with four of those wins coming in extra innings. While clutch victories can give a club great experience in pressure situations, Williams noted, they can also wear out relievers. “We want to make sure we’re mindful of everybody’s health and their load,” Williams said. “But we get in a situation to win a game, we have to try to do that too. It’s not easy, but it is baseball.”
Before Wednesday, setup man Tyler Clippard had already pitched 10 innings in August and middle reliever Craig Stammen had gone 91/3 innings — having appeared in extra innings twice. Drew Storen was called upon for five innings in that same stretch. And closer Rafael Soriano, who had three blown saves since the All-Star break, appeared in save situations in four games in five days from Aug. 13 to Aug. 17. Even though the bullpen has been maxed out lately, Stammen said the relievers have relished the challenge of pitching in crucial moments. “I don’t think it’s taking a toll,” said Stammen, who pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the top
Not going the distance The Nationals entered Wednesday with a 3.18 starters ERA — tied for second-best in baseball. But the rotation has combined for just three complete games all year (three fewer than the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw has himself), and they ranked 11th in starters innings pitched. (EXPRESS)
of the 11th in Monday’s 5-4 win over Arizona. “We like pitching in close games. All seven of us would love to pitch in the ninth inning with the game on the line. That’s what we’re built for, that’s how we got here. I think we’re excited to take the ball
whenever we can.” The Nationals held a six-game lead over the Braves and had a bullpen ERA of 2.81 — fourthbest in the majors — entering Wednesday. While Williams acknowledged the need for more blowout wins, such as Tuesday’s 8-1 victory over Arizona, he won’t be reluctant to turn to his bullpen in tight situations, even if fatigue is a concern. “It’s just part of the game. It happens sometimes,” Williams said. “You never want it by any means. But if you’re given the situation as presented to you, you’re given one choice. You can give up or you can fight. These guys fight.” JASON BUTT (FOR EXPRESS)

Season series: Tied 2-2, with the road team winning each matchup. Indiana: The Fever will try to make one more run for coach Lin Dunn, who is retiring at the end of the season. Indiana was on the outside of the playoffs heading into the final week of the season before winning three straight to secure the No. 2 seed.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden is both understanding and a little perplexed by Robert Griffin III’s inability to execute a graceful slide. Gruden said Wednesday that Griffin “needs to be a bit more fluid” when it comes to sliding. The coach even suggested he might eventually have to order up some sort of sliding training for the franchise quarterback. Sliding remained the hot topic at Redskins Park two days after Griffin took some big hits and pulled off an inelegant slide Monday in a preseason win over the Browns. Asked if the topic is overblown, Gruden said: “It is an issue if he gets injured. It’s not an issue if he doesn’t.” (AP)
Scoring change alters history for Jeter, Wagner Turns out, the hit that tied Derek Jeter with Honus Wagner came a day later than everyone thought. Major League Baseball made an official scoring change Tuesday that took away an infield single from Jeter on Aug. 8 and instead charged Cleveland first baseman Carlos Santana with an error on the play. Originally, that hit pulled Jeter even with Wagner for sixth place on baseball’s career list at 3,430. Now, it’s an infield single the next day against the Indians that moved Jeter up the chart. And it was his double on Aug. 11 in Baltimore that pushed him ahead of Wagner. (AP)

RGIII’s poor sliding still a hot topic
The Capitals signed free agent defenseman Brooks Orpik to a five-year, $27.5 million contract on July 1.
Orpik dismisses critics who say he’s overpaid CAPITALS Of the roughly half a billion dollars dispensed by NHL teams to free agents on July 1, the fiveyear, $27.5 million contract the Capitals offered Brooks Orpik attracted the most skepticism. The deal was widely panned by pundits who believe the veteran defenseman, who turns 34 in September, can never live up to it. They point to his dwindling ice time and poor possession statistics in recent seasons. “Whether you make the minimum or $9 million a year, there’s always going to be people that think you’re overpaid,” Orpik said in a phone interview
Tuesday. “You’re always aware of that. Washington, I think they know me well enough, so they know what they’re getting.” Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan says the team is getting a steadying presence on a blue line that was unstable last season. Washington dressed 14 different defensemen, tied for the most in the NHL. Coach Barry Trotz has praised the former Penguin’s intangibles. “The things that Brooks Orpik does,” Trotz said earlier this summer, “you can’t put a value on.” Among others, the Capitals will rely on the Stanley Cup champion and two-time Olympian to return
them to contender status after missing the playoffs for the first time since 2007. This summer, Washington reinforced its defensive corps, which includes another former Penguin in Matt Niskanen. As training camp approaches next month, Orpik is focused on maintaining consistency. “There are a lot of younger guys that contracts are given out for potential. I think I’m beyond that phase,” Orpik said. “I don’t think Washington expects me to all of a sudden be a completely different player. I think they’re giving me the contract … just to continue to be what I’ve been.” ADAM VINGAN (FOR EXPRESS)

That old mambo magic ‘Dirty Dancing’ returns as a stage show (but it’s not a musical, Baby) STAGE Musicals are different than real life. For example, in real life, communicating deep emotion by bursting into song is normally frowned upon. That rule is unexpectedly part of how things are done in “Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story on Stage” too. “It’s not a musical,” says Conrad Helfrich, music supervisor for the show, which is making its American debut at the National Theatre on Tuesday. “It’s a play with music.” The soundtrack — featuring songs like “Do You Love Me” and “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” — will be familiar to any girl who attended a sleepover from 1988 to 1992 or whose parents were lenient enough to let her see “Dirty Dancing” in the theater in 1987. “[The music] is always part of the action, rather than a comment on the action,” Helfrich says. “A typical musical number is almost like a break. That doesn’t happen with us; there’s a story still going on.” That story, about a rich girl named Baby and a bad-boy dance instructor named Johnny, takes place in 1963 at a resort in the Catskills. Instead of having Baby and Johnny serenade each other, the script leaves the singing to other cast members, who perform the songs while the action goes on around them. “It’s a little like ‘Glee.’ I sort of hate to say that,” says Doug Carpenter, who sings many of the show’s songs. “Ultimately it’s really fun, and that’s part of what these songs are trying to do.” A new character, Elizabeth, was created specifically for
Heeere’s Johnny (Josef Brown) and Baby (Amanda Leigh Cobb) in an earlier production.
the stage show. “She pretty much ties the story together through song,” Jennlee Shallow says of her role. “She has a bunch of feat u red moments, mostly singing soul numbers.” Carpenter isn’t sure what to expect when fans of the movie show up. One thing he’s certain of: When the show gets to “The Time of My Life,” the song that signals the final, triumphant dance sequence that releases Baby from her corner, “I imagine it’s going to go crazy,” he says. “You have all those memories of the movie and the nostalgia, and they give you that rush when you hear that song. I know I’ve had that thrill.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

Scallops with grapefruit and fig carpaccio Station 4, 1101 Fourth St. SW; 202-488-0987, station4dc.com.
Typically, carpaccio is made with thinly pounded raw meat. But chef Orlando Amaro opts for sliced figs instead. He tops them with scallops, grapefruit, daikon sprouts and a passion fruit gastrique with black sesame seeds. The appetizer is a playground on a plate, with the sweet flavors chasing after the bitter. HOLLEY SIMMONS (EXPRESS)

Singer Brett Harris looks out for No. 1 — and for an iconic band
FRIDAY AUGUST 22ND
THE CHUCK BROWN BAND
MUSIC Last year, North Carolina-based singer-songwriter Brett Harris’ career started to feel off balance. After self-releasing his melodic debut album, “Man of Few Words,” in 2010, Harris took on other projects — touring as a member of jangle-pop group The dB’s, doing local session work — and had inadvertently put his own music on the back burner. “One day, I realized it’d been a couple of years since I’d gone out and gone on a [solo] tour,” Harris says. So he hit the road and also started work on an album, “Up in the Air,” which he recently finished and will release next year. For now, Harris, 32, is putting out a four-song EP, “Mr. Sunshine,” on Sept. 9 that features three new originals and a live cover of Big Star’s “Kangaroo.” The EP is an apt representation of Harris’ upcoming weekend, when he’ll give his own music and his work as a sideman equal attention. On Saturday at the 9:30 Club, he’s part of Big Star’s Third, the touring, orchestral tribute to the ’70s power pop band featuring the group’s sole surviving member, drummer Jody Stephens (see sidebar). On Sunday, Harris will take the stage alone at Iota, with fellow Third ensemble members Pat Sansone (of Wilco) and Skylar Gudasz serving as openers.

7PM & 9:30PM
On Saturday, Brett Harris helps pay tribute to the band Big Star at 9:30 Club. On Sunday, he’ll play solo at Iota.
What is Big Star’s Third? The Big Star’s Third shows began in December 2010 to honor singer Alex Chilton, who died that March. (Early shows served as a benefit for Durham, N.C., organization Kidznotes, which provides free music training for children.) There have been about a dozen worldwide shows since, with R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, The dB’s’ Chris Stamey and Big Star drummer Jody Stephens leading a rotating group of guest musicians (and a string section) through Big Star’s classic album “Third,” above left. For Saturday’s show at 9:30 Club, the ensemble will also play the band’s 1972 debut, “#1 Record,” which features Big Star’s most well-known song: “In the Street.” You probably know the Cheap Trick cover, which was used as the theme to “That ’70s Show.” R.G.
“If someone likes the Third show they’re gonna dig my stuff, too,” Harris says. “Especially having Pat and Skylar on their own as solo artists. I think there’s a cool common language that we speak. It feels like family.”
in dies a r t i es
“Mr. Sunshine” certainly recalls Big Star — ornately produced songs that have a pop sensibility and a lurking darkness. Considering that, over the past four years, Harris has participated in about a dozen Big Star’s
Third shows, the influence was hard to avoid. “I firmly believe that whatever you are listening to is going to come out in a certain way, shape or form,” Harris says. Not that he’d have it any other way. “I consider myself really fortunate to be a part of these shows,” Harris says. “I’m still in disbelief that I keep getting asked, but who am I to say no to a chance to stand in front of Jody Stephens’ drum kit?” RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS) Big Star’s Third: 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW; Sat., 7 p.m., $30. Brett Harris: Iota Club & Cafe, 2832 Wilson Blvd., Arlington; Sun., 8:30 p.m., $12.
‘The Dark Crystal’ Landmark E Street Cinema, 555 11th St. NW; Fri. & Sat., 11:59 p.m., $9.
You probably shouldn’t take your kids to see “The Dark Crystal” on Friday or Saturday at the E Street Cinema. First, because both showings are at midnight, so they should really be in bed. Second, because the movie, though really good, is SERIOUSLY dark and kind of messed up and proof that just because Jim Henson is involved, it does not mean Kermit will show up and perform a kicky musical number. However, adults who either haven’t seen the 1982 fantasy film or wish to see it now in an attempt to purge their childhood trauma are very much encouraged to go. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

Arlington Historical Museum
NO EXAMPLE OF CIVIC PRIDE IS TOO TRIVIAL FOR THE ARLINGTON HISTORICAL MUSEUM. While roughly a
third of the space goes to the city’s founding and role in the Civil War, there’s also a display case entirely devoted to a letter from Ronald Reagan to a kindergarten class in 1981 (thanking the students for a get-well note sent after his near-assassination), the pen used to write it, a poster-sized version of the letter, pictures of the kids, a portrait of Reagan and two newspaper clippings. We’d call that hyperlocal, if “hyper” could in any way characterize the museum’s tranquil, Type B charm.
T he museu m l ives i n t he circa-1891 Hume School, closed in 1956. The Arlington Historical Society reopened it in 1963. See a recreated schoolroom, right, on the second floor.
Stuff to Look At Arlingtoniana needs only a passing connection to the city to qualify for inclusion. Hence the tombstone of Confederate soldier
Robert S. Jones, found in use as a doorstop in Arlington. He’s buried elsewhere in Virginia. The “Jefferson Davis Desk” may not have belonged to the president of the Confederacy, but a local family held it dear, and therefore it belongs. Other items of note: Arlington’s first TV, a “Genuine Metro Rock” souvenir from the opening of the Orange Line in Arlington, and free recipe cards for the coconut cream pie served
at the long-closed Allison’s Little Tea House. A new display looks at the bygone Arlington Brewing Company and its Prohibition-era product, Cherry Smash soda.
In the Gift Shop Books, cards, $1 recipe pamphlets. A guide to the city’s placenames ($10) reveals that “glebe” is not a nonsense word made up by whoever named Arlington’s streets. HOLLY J. MORRIS (EXPRESS)
The rope rang the school bell, until a kid pulled it too hard a few months ago.

May, the same way. Though the “Well, first, I was like, trio have worked together sad smiley,” she says, before (on songs like “The “and then I became happy Girl and the Robot” and 8 p.m. smiley.” “None of Dem”), “Do It Wolf Trap’s Robyn and Royksopp — Again” sounds brand new.

Brundtland says. “We just feel completely freed from that, in a sense. I guess that’s our sound, just to be free like that.” All three contributed to every aspect of recording and songwriting and left their egos out of the equation. “It’s definitely a less compartmentalized process than people would think,” Berge says.
Dancing on their own, then together Unlike Beyonce and Jay Z’s “On the Run” tour, in which Mr. and Mrs. Carter collaborated and traded off solo songs throughout each concert, Robyn and Royksopp’s joint tour is structured more traditionally. The evening begins with Royksopp’s set, followed by Robyn performing solo, and then, finally, the three join together for a mini-set of collaborations, including 2009’s “The Girl and the Robot” and tracks off of “Do It Again.” R.G.
In other words, they hung out and just let the music happen. “We all just really enjoy each other’s company,” Robyn says. “It’s very simple. You have friends, right? So when you’re with a friend that you like, do you think about how that relationship works? You just kind of enjoy it, right?” After the tour wraps at the end of the month, they’ll all go back to making new music. For Robyn, there’s an EP she worked on with Swedish producer Christian Falk, who died last month. For Royskopp, there’s an LP due out this fall called “The Inevitable End.” “We all like to think that we’re going to make even better music in the future,” Robyn says. “We all want to avoid this kind of romantic way of describing [‘Do It Again’]: that we saved each other, that we found a home. We just like to say that we like each other a lot and we’re friends.” So for now, as Robyn might say, they’re all happy smiley. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)
In “If I Stay,” out Friday, Mia (Chloe Grace Moretz) has choices to make: what to wear, what college to attend, whether to live or die. She’s in a coma after a car wreck and gets to choose what happens to her. Being a movie ghost has its advantages. “JUST LIKE HEAVEN”: Elizabeth (Reese Witherspoon) refuses to vacate her apartment. First, Mark Ruffalo has moved in and he’s cute. Second, she’s actually in a coma so that makes packing tough. Third, she isn’t going anywhere until she gets her security deposit back. “CASPER”: There was a 1995 movie made from the TV cartoon staple; both attempted to use humor to distract us from the fact that we’re watching the spirit of a dead kid. “HARRY POTTER” MOVIES: It’s a wonder anyone at Hogwarts got any sleep, what with ghosts like Nearly Headless Nick (John Cleese) showing up at all hours, asking if the kids had seen “Life of Brian” yet. “THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT”:
Yes, it’s about a witch, not a ghost, but given all the shaky cam, you’re certain to encounter the wrath of the Ghost of Whatever You Ate for Dinner as it comes back up. ANY FILM VERSION OF “HAMLET”: Dads are always giving
advice. “Make sure to have jumper cables,” they say. “Save 10 percent of your paycheck,” they say. “Avenge my death by killing my brother,” they say. Ah, dads.

A generation of Vine stars is using the video platform to find fame MUSIC A year ago, Shawn Mendes filmed himself singing a cover of the Justin Bieber song “As Long as You Love Me” and put the results on Vine, a service that allows users to share six-second video clips. He wasn’t expecting much response. “I posted that first Vine and woke up the next morning with 10,000 followers,” says Mendes, 16. “That was pretty cool.” Mendes soon signed with Island Records, which issued his self-titled EP late last month. It reached No. 1 on iTunes 37 minutes after it was released. Mendes leads a generation of Vine stars — singers, dancers, comedians and whatevers — who are using the online platform as a springboard to real-world
success. Michael and Carissa Alvarado, the married folk-pop outfit who record as Us the Duo, signed to Republic Records this spring; they are thought to be the first Vine stars to land a major record deal. They found that being “Vine famous” took work. “We thought about every single post, and changed our outfits for every video, and thought, ‘What’s the most strategic six seconds from this video that everyone can relate to?’ ” Michael Alvarado says. Many Vine stars are pragmatic about their path to fame. They are conversant in the language of site algorithms and know just which six seconds of just which hit song to cover for maximum impact. Many spend days editing their footage; others enlist video directors. They’re Vegas card counters, gaming the system. “To get on there specifically to be famous, I feel like that is
probably the wrong motive,” Alvarado warns. “When you go into Vine with that mind-set, it’s not going to happen like that.” Still, Vine drives traffic to users’ YouTube, Twitter or Instagram feeds. “All this feeds into building your brand,” says Keith Caulfield, associate director of charts and sales at Billboard. “If Shawn Mendes had tens of thousands of re-Vines and millions of views on YouTube, and Facebook impressions and Tumblr followers — when you add up all of those impressions, it becomes a tangible audience of people who are willing to engage with you.” Mendes still uploads Vines, although few hold out hope for the platform’s long-term prospects. “It’s already changed in just the six months we’ve been on it,” Alvarado says. “Even some of the leaders have already left. They’ve moved on to Snapchat.” ALLISON STEWART (THE WASHINGTON POST)
“The longer the night goes, the less joy there is in the room, because by then a number of people have lost. … The host and the program are standing between them and the bar.” SETH MEYERS, explaining why, when he hosts the Emmy Awards on Monday

Depp’s latest gig keeps it relative Johnny Depp is set to star in Kevin Smith’s new movie “Yoga Hosers” alongside his daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, and Smith’s daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The girls star as 15-year-old yoga enthusiasts who team up with a “legendary manhunter,” played by Johnny Depp, to harness “all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time” to fight an evil force, the producers told the magazine. After “Tusk,” out next month, “Yoga Hosers” is the second in Smith’s “True North” trilogy of films about Canadian culture, the magazine reported. Principal photography on the film starts this week, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (EXPRESS)
Emma Stone to star in ‘Cabaret’ on Broadway
Site accused Tame Impala of plagiarism as ‘a joke’
Roundabout Theatre Company said Wednesday that Emma Stone will make her Broadway debut in “Cabaret” as Sally Bowles, as rumored, on Nov. 11. Stone is taking over from Michelle Williams at the Studio 54 theater. Williams leaves Nov. 9 and Alan Cumming, who plays the chilling Emcee, has extended to March 29. Williams first stepped into the role this spring when Stone withdrew due to scheduling conflicts. The current show is a revival of a revival, which ran for more than 2,000 performances from 1998 to 2004 and won the Tony Award in 1998 for best musical revival. (AP)
The authors of an article claiming the band Tame Impala plagiarized from an Argentinian artist say it was “a joke.” Chilean site Rata earlier this month posted the article, which notes similarities between Tame Impala’s hit, “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards,” and Pablo Ruiz’s 1989 pop song “Oceano.” After the story went viral earlier this week, the site’s editors told Rolling Stone, “We never thought we’d had this impact, and we’re very surprised about it.” Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker agreed, replying to Rolling Stone’s request for comment with, “This is a joke, right?” (EXPRESS)

two of viewers’ favorite actors — Peter Dinklage of “Game of Thrones” and Taylor Schilling from “Orange is the New Black” — will star in an offBroadway run of Ivan Turgenev’s “A Month in the Country.” The staging of the Russian drama will run Jan. 9 to Feb. 15 in New York, and will be directed by Dinklage’s wife, Erica Schmidt.
“Russia’s kefir-drinking head of state scuppered my chances of making a decent plate of cacio i pepe or a batch of brownies for the next calendar year.” JENNIFER EREMEEVA AT BLOGS .REUTERS.COM/GREAT-DEBATE

“The main set pieces involve Nicki twerking in a jungle and twerking during exercise class, and there’s also a scene in which she makes a fruit salad. Drake is in it, too … mainly just as an object to be twerked upon.” ANNA SILMAN AT VULTURE.COM points out the ample amount of bottom-shaking in Nicki Minaj’s video for her new single, “Anaconda.”

summarizes a report from The Wall Street Journal that micro-messaging app Snapchat will launch “Snapchat Discovery” in November. The new feature will “let users read daily editions of publications as well as watch video clips of TV shows or movies by holding down a finger on the screen.” Snapchat executives have reportedly met with more than a dozen media companies in anticipation of the launch.
“If you thought it’d be wise to have at least one beer based on a Hobbit, because like the rest of us Hobbits dig getting loaded, then you thought wrong.” BEA KAYE AT UPROXX.COM/GAMMASQUAD

PAR SCORE 150-160, BEST SCORE 243
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may be trying to do something in a way that has not been approved, but if you stay the course, you could bring about important changes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re not in a position to make demands at this time, but you can certainly make your desires known in more subtle ways. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You are toying with a change that will require you to uproot yourself to a certain degree and make a move that others advise against. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You can impress those around you with your ability to see beyond obstacles to a clearer path. Progress is made quickly at this time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The more maneuvering you do behind the scenes, the more likely you will be to influence things in the right way.

Looks like he won’t always be her baby
How many light fixtures does it take? A mold infestation has prevented Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick from moving into their new house in Calabasas, Calif. Sources told TMZ that a decorator found the mold when installing a light fixture. Kardashian has plans to sue whoever is responsible for covering up the mold, most likely targeting former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson, who sold them the house.
The New York Post reported that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are close to divorce and living separately. Sources told the newspaper that Carey suspects Cannon of cheating, and has hired security guards to keep him away from girls at his DJ events. “He hasn’t been staying at their home,” one source said. “He’s been living out of hotels. They’re fighting a lot.” Carey, usually active on social media, hasn’t included photos of Cannon on her Instagram feed since June. Carey and Cannon married in 2008, and Carey gave birth to twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe in 2011. (EXPRESS)
