Which concerts will you attend in the next two months?

The weather in DC is gross! Here’s to air-conditioned concert venues, where the only sweaty people are those dancing their asses off to good music.

Here is our list of 15 concerts (with a few bonus shows) we’re looking forward to in the months of September and October.

Eleanor Friedberger @ Pearl Street Warehouse (9/13/18) (Preview)

Paul Simon @ Capitol One Arena (9/14/18) (Note: I’d really love to finally see him live.)

Dead Sara @ Black Cat (9/18/18) (Preview)

The National @ Merriweather Post Pavilion (9/28/18) (Note: Slightly disappointed with their show at The Anthem late last year, but hopefully heading back outdoors where I usually see them will be the ticket.)

Liz Phair @ 9:30 Club (10/3/18) (Note: After 13 years since I last saw her live, time to head back!)

Brian Fallon & Greg Finn @ Sixth & I Historic Synagogue (10/4/18) (Note: Brian just came through with the The Gaslight Anthem, and now pairing with Greg Finn of the Hold Steady, it will make for a brilliant show.)

Florence + The Machine @ The Anthem (10/5/18)

Lykke Li @ Lincoln Theatre (10/5/18) (Note: Same day! Choose wisely. I’ll choose Lykki since I haven’t seen her live before.)

All Things Go @ Union Market (10/6 & 10/7/18) (Note: All Things Go is back and call me maybe better than last year? Well, let’s ask Carly Rae Jepsen.)

Phil Collins @ Capitol One Arena (10/7/18) (Note: I should definitely see him live solo at least once.)

The Struts @ 9:30 Club (10/8/18) (Note: They are awesome live, get there!)

Death Cab For Cutie @ The Anthem (10/17/18)

CHVRCHES @ The Anthem (10/18/18) (Note: #1 on this list! Should be awesome.)

Garbage @ Lincoln Theatre (10/21/18) (Note: Still only happy when it rains, so we’re good in DC as of this post.)

Lily Allen @ Fillmore (10/21/18)


Need some bonus shows? You’re in luck!

June Divided @ Slash Run (9/5/18) (Preview)

Courtney Marie Andrews @ Rock and Roll Hotel (9/20/18) (Preview)
