Local soon-to-be legends Gabriel and Lit’l Monstar are mounting themselves on 8-inch platform shoes to kick out their latest creation, the funk-rock opera Delicious Hunger, Hunger Delicious. Tonight’s program carries their performance-art band Vashti’s beats and an ensemble of 25 actors, dancers, and visual artists through a pastiche of scenes musing on the chaos of love, society, and the ozone-depleted future. Protest gravity and loneliness with Vashti at 6 & 7:30 p.m. at the National Theatre, 1321 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 783-3372. (Ginger Eckert)
