The Week In Shows: 5/13/19-5/19/19

A sleepy Saturday afternoon 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!

What a week it's been, my friends. And it's not even over. This weekend has some stellar shows happening, and I hope you'll get out there and see some of the strong slate of shows in the area. And what does next week have in store? Let's find out, shall we? 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!
