The Week In Shows: 1/1/19-1/6/19
What a year it's been. It's been a rough one, I can't even pretend otherwise. From the political to the personal, I'm really happy to be bidding buh-bye to 2018. There's a lot to look forward to in the new year, though, and I can't wait to see how 2019 goes down. Let's start the year off with some great shows, shall we? It's a pretty light week, but there's always something to hear around town. 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!
