The Week In Shows: 5/26-6/1

An impossibly pretty Sunday morning in the middle of a long weekend is as good a time as any to plot ones weekly live music schedule, I think. For the weekend, anyway! 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 may or may not be taking in over the course of this abbreviated week. Hot diggity!

Awesome show season is upon us, friends. The decision-making process about where to spend your show-going time has gotten a lot trickier. I've been pretty happy lately, but this abundance of good music elevates my mood even more. This week is another pretty good week around town, though a little thin (to allow for recovery from the holiday weekend, no doubt). And you never know, I just might see you out and about during the week. As always, anything that's starred has a high forecast of yours truly being there.
