The Week In Shows: 12/2-12/8

A Monday afternoon is as good a time as any to plot ones weekly live music schedule, I think. Let's take a look at what's happening in the greater DC metro this week, with the added bonus of filling you in on what I'll be taking in over the course of the week. Hot diggity!

I don't know about y'all, but I'm pretty happy it's December. Black Friday nonsense is over, and the countdown to 2014 is on. As much as I hate the temps of winter, I'm all about a lot of what the season has to offer. Traditionally, this means some pretty killer shows. Let's see what's on tap, shall we? I just might be out and about this week, friends, let's say hi (show decisions still unmade as of press time).
