There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
In just over a year, Takoma nonprofit community arts space Rhizome has established itself as D.C.’s Best New Venue (according to this publication) thanks to its commitment to DIY ethos and a curatorial vision that celebrates experimental music in all of its forms. That approach is on display at a show headlined by Baltimore-born, Los Angeles-based duo Odwalla1221 and Iran-born New York City-based producer Sadaf. This tour forges the frontier of experimental music, and thanks to Rhizome, D.C. gets to experience it in an intimate, comfortable space. Read more >>> Odwalla1221 performs with Sadaf, Alex Cunningham, and Twin Jude at 8 p.m. at Rhizome DC, 6950 Maple St. NW. $10 suggested donation. rhizomedc.org. (Chris Kelly)
District Doughnut’s newest offerings celebrate fall. The Barracks Row and Georgetown shops are now serving a pumpkin brulee doughnut made with pumpkin dough, pumpkin pie filling, and a caramelized sugar top. There’s also something that should remind you of Halloween candy—a chocolate peanut butter doughnut with a milk chocolate glaze, peanut butter pastry cream, peanut butter feuilletine, and a drizzle of chocolate ganache. The doughnuts cost $3.50 each. District Doughnut, 749 8th St. SE, (202) 750-1955, districtdoughnut.com. (Laura Hayes)
