Look. Tonight’s not going to go down in history as the most fun Wednesday night of all time. A lot of venues are in end-of-summer mode and entertainment options are a little thinner than usual. But here are a few options.


The documentary Dances of Ecstasy seems to straddle the line between Burning Man and a Discovery Channel special, trotting the world to learn more about the “altered states experiences” sought by traditional dancers, healers, and yes, ravers. 8 p.m. at Artisphere’s Dome Theatre. $6.


Yacht Rock Revue—-an Atlanta cover band beloved by our sister publication Creative Loafing—-is exactly what it sounds like. Guys dressed alternately like professional poker players or Capt. Merrill Stubing reprising soft rock and blue-eyed soul hits. This is going to go over really well in Georgetown. 8 p.m. at Saloun. Free.


For people without children: Poppy Brazilian duo The Twelves—-best known for a slate of remixes for M.I.A. and La Roux, among others—-plays a live set at U Street Music Hall. Gloves and AutoRock open. 9 p.m. $10.

For people with children: The ever-popular, kid-friendly dance night Baby Loves Disco comes to Rock & Roll Hotel. 5 p.m. $20 or $60 for four.


Tonight could also be a great night to revisit Twin Peaks.
