This week is a lot more low-key than last, but then again last week was pretty packed. It wasn't just because of Artscape. On Saturday alone, Cass McCombs gave a beautiful show at Golden West Cafe; Scottie B. killed at Metro Gallery, right after all the Artscape madness had ended; there was DYAO at Dionysus, and a tribute to Nina Hagen on the Charles St. bridge. Alas, there probably won't be anyone running around in "Blade Runner" costumes this week. What's happening: Wiz Khalifa and Gang Gang Dance are the best bets for the week; elsewhere there is Thank You, a beer dinner, and a couple of dance parties.
On Monday, the Get Down, 701 South Bond Street, hosts the weekly dance party Happy Mondays. 8 p.m. No cover. Domestics go for $2.
On Tuesday, the art-punk band Gang Gang Dance plays the Ottobar, 2549 N Howard St. Come for Lizzie Bougatsos, stay for the 2-for-1 drink special upstairs from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. 8 p.m. $13.
On Wednesday, not a whole lot is happening. "Iron Man 2" will be shown at the Broadway Pier in Fells as part of Films on the Pier. 8:45 p.m. Free.
On Thursday, Heavy Seas Brewery hosts a four-course beer dinner at Frank and Nic's, 511 W. Pratt St. Starts at 7 p.m. For reservations, go to Frank and Nic's website, or call the restaurant directly. Also: Red Maple hosts its new weekly party Posh Tavern; Scottie B. is among the DJs. 10 p.m. $5 after 11 p.m.
On Friday, Baltimore alternative band Red Sammy performs at the Windup Space, 12 W. North Avenue, with bands Sal Bando and Soon Clyde. 9 p.m. $7.
On Saturday, Thank You performs at Golden West Cafe, 1105 W. 36th St. 10 p.m. $5-10.
On Sunday, Wiz Khalifa returns to the area yet again, this time performing at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10475 Little Patuxent Pkwy. 3 p.m. Tickets start at $35.
