The Week In Shows: 5/21/18-5/27/18

A waterlogged Friday 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 coming week, shall we? Hot diggity!

May in the DC metro continues to be full not just of excessive rainfall but fantastic live music here, and the hits just keep coming. The week to come features a number of shows to keep any music lover grinning from ear to ear. 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!
