Another overcast, blah kind of 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'm sure many of you share the sense of overwhelming exhausted dismay and a hearty dose of rage that I currently feel because of you know who. Let's all take some solace in each other, and find some happy distraction in music both recorded and live. 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 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!
