The Week In Shows: 5/9-5/15

A sort of sunny, Kentucky Derby day Saturday afternoon 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!

I love me the Kentucky Derby, y'all, and I hope you're as excited to see who wins the first leg of the Triple Crown as I am. But we're here to talk live music, and there's plenty of those over the course of the next few days. There's a lot to see 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 in too much vitamin D withdrawal). 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.
