The Week In Shows: 5/14/18-5/20/18

An early Friday May morning watching the sun rise 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 coming week, shall we? Hot diggity!

May has already been exceptional for shows, and evidently the month is just getting warmed up. This week is one of the best of the year, with a bounty of all sorts of wonderful people coming to play their music for us lucky devils. 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. 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!
