The Week In Shows: 7/3/17-7/9/17
After a weekend of wonderful out of town hedonism, it's back to business as usual around these parts. Half the year has gone, friends, but the next six months are sure to be full of great music to see. And now, without further ado, here's a look at some of those very shows I happen to recommend for the coming week in the greater DC metro area. It's America's birthday week, so be careful if you're planning on setting off your own fireworks, y'all. And look for your homegirl at anything with an asterisk.
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!
