The Week In Shows: 10/16/17-10/22/17

A gray and gloomy Saturday morning in mid-October 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!

The jet lag has just about left the building, and I'm back to feeling like an almost-human again. Which is a good thing, because it's prime show-going season. Keep an eye out for yours truly at any show with an asterisk. 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. This has to be one of the most stacked weeks all year long, so good luck picking and choosing y'all...

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!
