A gray and icky Saturday 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!
It's going to be an interesting week, my friends, to say the least. But we are resilient, and we will persevere. Just be safe, whatever you happen to be doing, especially next weekend. And now, without further ado, here's a look at some of the shows I happen to recommend for the coming week in the DC metro. And as a reminder, 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!
