It seems like everyone’s obsessed with singlehood in 2016. Dakota Johnson, post–Fifty Shades of Grey fame, is helming a new flick called How to Be Single, and a bevy of half-hearted web series clutter YouTube with videos on similar subjects. As the ever-divisive Valentine’s Day weekend approaches, Laura Lane and Angela Spera arrive to ease D.C.’s pain. The pals created This Is Why You’re Single as a live sketch show back in 2013, and the brand’s grown into a chart-topping podcast, book, and one of the more relatable relationship advice channels on the web. For the downtown audience, Lane and Spera will take a hilarious and sometimes all-too-honest trip through each reason so many of us are single. If their podcast is any indication, being a stalker or aggressively pursuing your romantic target via social media just might come up in the discussion. Laura Lane and Angela Spera perform at 7 p.m. at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, 600 I St. NW. $14–$32. (202) 408-3100. sixthandi.org.
