The Week In Shows: 5/15/17-5/21/17

An absolutely gorgeous Mother's Day 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!

There's a heatwave a-comin' y'all, and good shows aplenty. I'm excited about half of those things. You know which half. And now, without further ado, here's a look at some of the shows I happen to recommend for the coming week in the greater DC metro area. Catch me at the asterisked shows! 

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!
