The Week In Shows: 5/2-5/8

A rainy, gloomy, sleep-all-day Sunday morning seems 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, shall we? Hot diggity!

Once more, another month has snuck up on us. Hello, May. I always thought it was April showers bring May flowers, but right now it's May showers for days. And shows! There's a lot of good music coming through the greater DC metro this week. As a reminder, you might catch me at any show with an asterisk (provided I'm not in an allergic coma or waterlogged). Make sure you get out there this week and support your bands of choice. So here we go, a look at some recommended shows for the coming week.
