The Week In Shows: 7/30/18-8/5/18

A pre-stormy weather Friday night seems as good a time as any to plot ones weekly show schedule, I think. Let's take a look at what's happening in the greater DC metro this coming week, shall we? Hot diggity!

Well, friends, it was a soggy week indeed, and it was pretty dreary apart from the weather, too. I don't know about y'all, but I was waving the white flag early in the week and it just snowballed from there. What a week (and I don't mean that in a good way). But it's over, for a couple days at least, and August is already looming on the horizon. 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!
