Summary: End of Decade Vibes 

Well, DMV, it's a big holiday week and nearing the end of the decade so why not spend some time appreciating some  incredible opportunities for live music happening in the DMV this week! Check out the links below with personal choices in bold, along with a list of the DCMR staff picks and special "gems" that you don't want to miss! 

And...

...this is a bit of a quieter week, naturally, because of the holidays. And while this can be a joyous time for some, it can be a hard time for others. Music can be a salve when the expectations of holiday season starts to feels challenging. But sometimes it isn't enough. 

We at DCMR want to share the following resources for anyone who may be feeling depressed or suicidal, this time or year, or anytime:

All of Crisis Text Line's Crisis Counselors are volunteers, donating their time to helping people in crisis. Read more here.
