Before you ask, yes, the members of La Femme are French, and their songs are sung in French. But your monolingualism shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the synthy surf-rock group whose music has spanned the globe. What does a typical La Femme track sound like?

On the whole, it’s the kind of music you might hear in a fun haunted house, and this show is your cue to find a new haunt.

The Four Seasons food truck (yes, apparently the hotel chain has a food truck) is roaming D.C. this week on its East Coast tour. Georgetown Four Seasons chef Douglas Anderson and Bourbon Steak chef Joe Palma are both creating dishes that will compete for audience votes (the winner will be announced on Oct. 18). Anderson will serve up half-smokes, grilled kim-cheeses, lamb burgers, bulgogi short rib sandwiches, and more, while Palma is preparing fried Old Bay shrimp and grits, pulled pork, and roasted turkey sandwiches. Today, you can find the truck at MedStar Washington Hospital Center at 110 Irving St. NW from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. All the proceeds from this stop will be donated to the Washington Cancer Institute. The truck will make another stop at the M Street NW parking entrance of the PNC Georgetown branch from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight. (Jessica Sidman)
