With or without the exclamation point (which they briefly ditched in '08), Panic! at The Disco is never short on adrenaline. At this stop on The Gospel Tour, you can expect to hear songs from the band's latest album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, including hit singles like "Miss Jackson, "This is Gospel" and "Girls/Girls/Boys." You can also count on over-the-top lead singer Brendon Urie to rip through older hits like "Nine in the Afternoon" and the band's platinum single, "I Write Sins Not Tragedies." Indie rockers Walk The Moon ("Anna Sun") and Youngblood Hawke ("We Come Running") will get the evening started. Learn More
When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.NSO: Koh Plays Barber info • Nov 01 2013 star this tip starred

I have always wanted to hear a live performance of Vaughn Williams' Symphony No. 2 (A London Symphony.) This performance did not disappointment, especially done beautifully with a good young British conductor, Halls, with a very disciplined baton. The Ravel Toumbeau de Couperin was just an added bonus. The middle work, by recently deceased composer Dutilleaux, a modern cello concerto played by the NSO's principle cellist, was not my cup of tea, though I'm sure it was performed very well. I didn't care. It was the Vaughn Williams that I went to hear and I was therefore happy. Go Friday and Saturday. You won't be disapointed.

The NSO gave Matthew Halls all he wanted in a terrific, diverse set of suites. The opening suite gave me the visual of walking through a peaceful meadow, slowly gazing at a meandering creek. Accomplished guest cellist David Hardy joined the fold...continued
