The Week In Shows: 5/22/17-5/28/17

An overcast and somewhat humid 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!

Between the cicadas and this icky sticky faux summer outside, May is kind of being a pain. There is only one kind of sweat I don't hate, and it's got nothing to do with above 90 degree temperatures and one thousand percent humidity. Just a reminder that summer is coming and it's going to be yucky. What isn't yucky is the volume of good shows to choose from this week. 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. 

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!
