Music buffs in the Washington D.C. area had better get ready for the music to begin. It is summer time and bands are starting to prep for tours and shows. Just a few on the docket are The Kruger Brothers June 3rd at the Hamilton, Best Coast June 4th at the 9:30 Club, Paperhaus, Shark Week and Young Rapids June 7th at Rock & Roll Hotel, Lissie June 8th at U Street Music Hall.
The weather is getting warmer, which means that bands, both up and coming and well established are beginning to tour. We are so lucky in Washington DC to not only draw the big names stopping by the Verizon Center as part of their national tours, but also getting newer artists into our basement and attic venues, where fans get a more intimate sound, and have the opportunity to get up close and personal with their favorite musicians. As IntheCapital's resident audio fiend, here are my top 11 picks for shows to see this month. These artists range in style from folk to electronic to hip hop, and I'm positive ya'll will love at least half of these.
