Portugese renditions of David Bowie, Ennio Morricone, Sven Libaek — the soundtrack of Wes Anderson’s 2004 film “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” has its own unique vibe.
Some of the most memorable scenes in the film feature music that didn’t make it onto the 20-song, one-hour album, including the Sigur Ros wonder Staralfur.
If you want to hear some of the soundtrack, as well as its Icelandic outtakes, you could always head over to the Union Market drive-in movie summer session this Friday, which will feature “Life Aquatic” and all its Anderson- and Bill Murray-ness.
Roll Call After Dark is about what Washington does when it's not at work.
The District of Columbia is a cultural capital where you can you get your kicks from movies projected on the National Mall, lectures on vermouth or Russian avant-garde art. There's always something to do.
