The genius of André Allen Anjos lies in his ability to “make it new,” to quote Ezra Pound. Known as RAC (Remix Artist Collective), Anjos has gained attention in the past couple of years for his synth-y, sometimes makes-you-wanna-shout, sometimes makes-you-wanna-sigh, but mostly makes-you-wanna-dance takes on indie and alternative tunes that are often popular in their own rite. Fans of Phoenix will appreciate his quicker-tempo “Armistice,” with a chorus preceded by Phil Collins-esque drum beats and punctuated by sliding scales on the synthesizer; in RAC’s retelling, Tegan & Sara’s already angsty “Back in Your Head” sounds like quadruplets rocking out rather than twins.

The Red Hen co-owner and beverage director Sebastian Zutant is finally ready to release the rosé cider he produced with Virginia’s Castle Hill cidery. To make the beverage, Zutant used the lees from a rosé he co-produced last spring with Virginia Wineworks and aged it with apple cider in an underground clay vessel. In honor of the cider’s debut, the Bloomingdale restaurant is offering a glass paired with a foie gras triangular sandwich with sour cherry preserves and toasted hazelnuts for $15 (available today only). The rosé cider itself will go for $13 a glass. Read more on Young & Hungry. The Red Hen, 1822 1st St. NW. (202) 525-3021. theredhendc.com. (Jessica Sidman)
