The Week In Shows: 1/1/18-1/7/18

A surprisingly snowy Saturday morning in late December 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!

It's the last weekend of 2017, and as such, I'd like to wish you all an incredibly Happy New Year. May 2018 be better than 2017 in every possible way, politically and otherwise. 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 as we say howdy to 2018. Bit of a slow week, but that's probably for the best as we all recover from NYE. Bonus: catch yours truly at any show with an asterisk next to it.

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!
