The Week In Shows: 9/12-9/18

An incredibly humid Friday evening 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!

As I sit here listening to the sound of cicadas and thinking of how freaking hot it still is outside, I'm reminded that fall will eventually be starting. Presumably. Which will make me a happy little lady.  In the meantime, there's a ton of good music to take in around these parts, with the week ahead looking absolutely packed with fantasticness. So here we go, a look at some recommended shows for the coming week. 

And as an aside, if you've got a show coming up you'd like me to consider including in my weekly calendar, just shoot me an email with "Calendar" somewhere in the subject line. Thanks y'all!
