The Week In Shows: 8/20/18-8/26/18

An early Sunday morning 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!

Fall is a-coming, y'all, and I am eager to welcome it back to town. I'm also eager for the cicadas to GTFO out town, because they're driving me nuts. As we know, with fall comes an onslaught of amazing shows, so I hope you're already looking at your calendars for September and October. But first, we still have some August shows to talk about. It's a bit light this week, but that's not to say there's nothing to do. 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!
