Selections by Philip Chevalier, Svetlana Legetic, and Christopher Naoum of Listen Local First

People, it’s Monday once again — time to get pumped for some muthaf***in’ shows. In case you didn’t even know, every week we bring you all the information you can handle about the cool concerts to hit up in D.C. Don’t say we don’t love you.

(p.s. BANDS/VENUES-looking to get your shows in front of us? Just head over to our AGENDA page, it is super easy to post your events there and it guarantees us seeing them).
