A Sunday in late winter that feels like Sunday in late winter 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!
Ah, the joys of global warming. I'm sure we've all enjoyed that little burst of spring, but winter is back (at least, for a day or so). Don't tell the cherry blossoms, though, they're already starting to pop up. 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!
