Galaxy Hut hosts a Dirt Farm Valentine's Day featuring new works by satiric comic-strip artist Ben Claassen, whose works appear in City Paper and the Examiner. The Arlington venue, which already features his paintings on the walls, is replacing them with a bunch of new paintings. The night also features music by The Torches and Third Channel, and Baltimore stand-up comedians Mickey Free and Ellie Beziat. 8 p.m. $5.
What would you do to make it? How far would you go? Is the enterprise of American capitalism working? In Civilization (All You Can Eat), six professionals living in the city fight to make it to the top. Jason Grote's satiric play opens at Woolly Mammoth Theatre. Tickets online.
