Watch a Performance
Head across the street to Lincoln Theatre for an evening with Billy Idol and Steve Stevens featuring punk rock sounds in April or listen to Grammy-winning artist Imogen Heap in May. Meanwhile next door at U Street Music Hall, the DJ Black Coffee will be spinning at the end of March and soulful hip-hop artist Onra will be performing in April. Over at the Howard Theatre, partake in the 10th anniversary of the Pancakes & Booze art show in April or catch singer Pedro Capo perform in May.

Explore an Exhibit
Plan a visit to The Phillips Collection to experience a temporary exhibition of photographs of the Underground Railroad by artist Jeanine Michna-Bales. The museum also offers a wide variety of events and programs like their monthly Phillips After 5 series, as well as artist talks, panel discussions, and concerts. Another great institution to discover art (and celebrate Women’s History Month in March) is the National Museum of Women in the Arts. A new exhibition called “The Contour of Feeling” features wooden sculptures by artist Ursula von Rydingsvard.

Check Out the Cherry Blossoms
A trip to the Tidal Basin during peak bloom of cherry blossom season is always worth the unparalleled views. In celebration of the natural splendor as well as American and Japanese cultures, the National Cherry Blossom Festival hosts a variety of events between March 20 and April 14. Some of the highlights include the Pink Tie Party on March 22, the Blossom Kite Festival on March 30, and the National Cherry Blossom Parade on April 13. After visiting the blooms, make your way up to the Cherry Blossom Pub in Shaw for themed cocktails and a special ramen menu.
