Smooth Operator: Tickets are still available to see Sade, the queen of smooth, sultry soul at the Verizon Center tonight. Still making great music nearly three decades into her career, the smoky-voiced singer will be joined by R&B star John Legend. $39.63 and up; 7:30 p.m.
Brilliant! Tragic! For a concert of a very different sort, try Art Brut at the Black Cat. The cheeky alt-rock band, known for literate, sarcastic songs about hipster culture, puts on a highly energetic show led by wild frontman Eddie Argos. Rising Georgia band Reptar opens. $15; 8 p.m.
Grape Flick: Learn about Virginia wines and drink them at the Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse tonight. The theater will screen Vintage: The Winemaker's Year, a film about VA winemaking, and will offer a tasting of wines highlighted in the film. Tasting (purchase separately on site) at 6:15 p.m., film ($8) at 7:30 p.m.
