The first weekend in September could be a sad reminder that vacation is over and we are all back at school or work. But we at The News are here to fill you in on all the concerts, parties and events that can spice up your weekend.

Get things started Thursday evening at the Pulquería Insurgentes, a favorite nightlight spot in Roma Norte, which is hosting the launch of the “Radicalas” feminist fanzine, and the 8th edition of the “All the Ladies in the House” concert. The all-women line-up starts with DJ Ali Miss Guaguis from Veracruz, followed by Las Hijas del Rap from Mérida, Yucatán and wrapping up with DJ Gabriela Ubaldo from São Paolo, Brazil. The free party gets started at 8:30 p.m. at Insurgentes Sur 226, Colonia Roma Norte.

Also on Thursday is the opening of a new photo exhibition by Marco Antonio Varela on Art Deco architecture in Mexico City. The exhibit at the the Xavier Villaurrutia Cultural Center, in Locales 11 and 12 in the Glorieta de los Insurgentes. The opening is at 6 p.m. and is free. Details are on Facebook.

On Friday and Sunday, world-renowned German singer Ute Lemper will perform Kurt Weill’s song cycle “The Seven Deadly Sins” with the National Symphonic Orchestra conducted by Carlos Miguel Prieto. Many consider Lemper the world’s best interpreter of Weill’s vocal music. She will also perform songs by Jacques Brel, George Gershwin and John Kander. The concerts will take place on Friday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 12:15 p.m. at the Fine Arts Palace.

Friday evening is the second “Fiesta de Mezcalerías” organized by the Archivo Agave, to bring you to the best mezcal bars in the city. It will start at 7 p.m. in front of Salón Covadonga at Puebla 124 in Roma Norte. You have to confirm attendance at the email and more information is available on Facebook. The event includes Oaxacan food and live music.

Also on Friday one of Mexico’s latest rap sensations, Tino el Pingüino, presents his new album “De Vuelta en el Lodo” at Salón Corona in Colonia Roma Norte. The concert starts at 8 p.m. and pre-sale tickets are 250 pesos. Pre-sale tickets are on Ticketmaster.

For the Pokémon Go lovers out there, on Sunday afternoon the Museo del Juguete Antiguo México in Colonia Doctores is hosting a tour of their current exhibit on Pokémon and a Pokémon Go meet-up. The event costs 50 pesos at the Museum, which is on Calle Doctor Olvera 15. More information from TimeOutMexico.
