Which concerts will you attend in the next two months?
The summer is shaping up to be a busy time for concerts in the DC area!
With so many concerts to choose from, it was too much of a chore to narrow it down to 10. So we upped the game this round and listed 15 shows and a few bonus shows we’re looking forward to in May and June.
HAIM @ The Anthem (5/1/18) Preview
Tokyo Police Club @ 9:30 Club (5/2/18)
Alice in Chains @ The Anthem (5/3/18) Note: I have never witnessed them live, and should correct that. I’ve been reluctant to get on board with a lead singer that is not Layne Staley.
Alvvays @ 9:30 Club (5/8/18) Review
The Kills @ Lincoln Theatre (5/14/18) Review
King Tuff @ Rock and Roll Hotel (5/16/18) Review
The Longshot @ Black Cat (5/25/18) Note: Billie Joe Armstrong’s new band?! Let’s do it!
10,000 Maniacs @ The Birchmere (5/27/18) Note: These are days to see the band live for the first time, even without Natalie Merchant.
Gaslight Anthem @ 9:30 Club (5/28/18) Preview
Jack White @ The Anthem (5/29 & 5/30/18) Note: Stoked, haven’t seen Jack since the 2012 Firefly Music Festival.
The Regrettes @ Black Cat (6/6/18) Preview
Daryl Hall & John Oates @ Capital One Arena (6/11/18)
U2 @ Capital One Arena (6/17 & 6/18/18) Note: Wow, I realize I haven’t seen U2 for almost 20 years!
Paramore @ Merriweather Post Pavilion (6/23/18) Note: I’m sad I can’t go to this show, they kicked ass last year at MGM National Harbor.
The Naked and Famous @ Union Stage (6/23/18) Note: This will be great.
Kingman Island Bluegrass & Folk Festival (6/9/18)
Firefly Music Festival @ The Woodlands in Dover, DE 6/14-6/17/18) Preview
