The Week In Shows: 11/14-11/20

The first Friday night after that depressing as hell presidential election 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!

In all seriousness, I'm really dismayed and gloomy about the next four years. We're about to be under the thumb of a man (men, including his Cabinet picks) who has no love of anything but power and money, and that's not really cool. Now more than ever, we're going to have to stick together, be supportive of one another, and stand strong behind the good things. Which, of course, includes music. There's a lot of music to help numb the pain, so get out there and soak in some solace and solidarity. So here we go, a look at some of the shows I happen to recommend for the coming week. And if you happen to see an asterisk by a show, I'll be there. You should too.

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!
