Week Of:  September 23 — 29, 2019

Summary: September Splendor

It's another humdinger of a week we got here. Every night is packed, just PACKED with choices. Any of these, you can't really go wrong. Just look at the staff picks for Tuesday alone:

...and that's only on ONE NIGHT, plus some serious local jams happening that night at Gypsy Sally's and artists gracing smaller venues with some great stuff. There's a whole week in that night! And again, a TUESDAY!

An anomaly? Let's look at Wednesday. Who is hitting DC proper that night:

Lizzo, she's kind of the real deal. Stereolab, welcome back, we love having you here, and Cat Power, you rock. Can these artists get together for an afterparty and let us know where?

Thursday? Why not:

...and the gems and jams for those nights, also stellar. (Looking at you, Wu Fei+Abigail Washburn.)

And WEEKEND​ ​​​shows like:

Plus some really great non-show opportunities, like Black Women Arts & Activism; Nina/Miriam Tribute fundraiser at Atlas Performing Arts Center, Look Here: Photography, Music, Community at Dupont Underground, and 30th Annual Kunta Kinte Heritage Festival at Annapolis City Dock happening throughout the week.

So this is a really good week to get out there and check out our jam-packed scene! There are MORE shows are listed in the links below, with personal show choices in bold, along with a list of the DCMR staff top picks and cool "gems" that you don't want to miss.  Forget sleep this week, you can make it's not so HOT in here.
