Which concerts will you attend in May?

Many fine concerts coming to DC this month, don’t sleep on these.

Here we try to whittle down the hundreds of concerts coming to DC in May into a more manageable list. May it be ever easier to decide which tickets to buy. (Yet so many shows on the same day, tough decisions will need to be made.)
