Week Of:  January 21 — 27, 2019

Summary: After the Super Blood Wolf Moon

Do we listen more carefully? Do we dance more boldly?

Plenty of opportunity to do both of those this week in the DMV. There is a lot of powerful music happening including some tributes to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. listed below that are worth experiencing. 

 And once again this week, knowing that many people in the DMV are still affected by the furlough and may not have extra money to spend, here is a truncated (and not exhaustive) list of FREE shows for each day:

Plus, a LOT MORE exciting things to see and hear and feel in the links below, with personal choices in bold, along with a list of the DCMR staff top picks and cool "gems" that you don't want to miss.  

And feel free to keep gazing at that moon lovingly.
