The first time Virginia Grohl saw her son Dave perform in front of screaming fans, she knew he was destined to be a rock star, and she was right. As Dave rose to the top of the charts, Virginia started to wonder about other musicians’ mothers. She wanted to know if they were surprised by their children’s fame, if they enjoyed it, if they nagged their superstar sons and daughters about what to bring on the road. In From Cradle to Stage, she answers those questions, writing from interviews with the mothers of musicians including Dr. Dre, Michael Stipe, Amy Winehouse, and more – plus her own family photographs and stories about raising a legend. Doors open at 6:45. Tickets are $35 and include a copy of her book. 1811 14th Street NW. For more information click here.

What is the relationship between food, jazz, and American history? In the late 19th and early 20th century, jazz spread into American life, blending many influences and finding distinct forms in each community it was played, from New Orleans to Harlem to Kansas City. You will be joined by guest chef Rock Harper, who will prepare a few dishes from America’s leading jazz communities, as you explore how each city produced unique culinary creations to feed both musicians and their audiences, and discuss how the foods that fed jazz are as improvisational, innovative, and rooted in tradition as the music itself. 2:00 pm. Constitutional Avenue NW. For more information click here.
