Week Of:  February 12-18, 2018 -

Special Valentine's Day Edition


Whoa nelly, what a week coming up! Clone yourself, plan to call in sick at work, have your morning coffee at 8pm, figure out a way to get to all of these shows (especially because the more you go to, the more likely you are to win an awesome DC Music Review t-shirt).

See "All Featured Events" highlighted below for some great jams for the week ahead!

Must See Shows:

The coming week has an amazing and diverse confluence of musicians coming through the area.  

In our latest Scene-In-Review interview with Rudi Greenberg, Managing Editor of the Washington Post Express, he aptly indicated that February is "stacked with shows to go to." Here are some of the incredible opportunities to check out : 

Hidden Gem Shows: 

So many great musicians and shows, these are the super cool ones to impress your date and maybe even yourself: 

Where to take your Valentine or your own bad self on February 14: 

Got a date? Got yourself? Don't care? Whatever way you flow, here are some additional menu options of tasty morsels for Valentine's Day: 

  • Want to impress your date by showing your chops? Check out the Inaugural Open Jam/Workshop hosted by Neel Singh at Villain & Saint with special guest house-band: Skaii. Walk in, sign up, and be paired up with other musicians for an impromptu jam. Or if you and your band (or your sweetie) have something already prepared you want to try workshop on stage, this is the place. Nothing brings people together like taking a risk together. 
  • Your Valentine is not your romantic partner? Check out noise pop duo Sleigh Bells with Sunflower Bean at the 9:30 club.  Sleigh Bells guitarist and songwriter Derek Miller met vocalist Alexis Krauss when he was waiting her table at a bistro in Brooklyn. Love takes many forms, one of them being two people who meet and become a creative force to be reckoned with.

Here are our recommendations for shows throughout the DMV.
