When Music Attacks! Fall 2013

I haven’t received a 9:30 Club email in a good long while that makes my all my epidermis green with envy!  And what slays me is that when I am home in December visiting DC/MD from South Africa, there will be approximately no shows because the holidays are not a time of year that bands tour. Le sigh. These are just the highlights!  I recommend all of them.  Please go. I can’t but you can.  

I’m doing this by venue instead of date because it’s easier.  

The shows I think you would most enjoy are bracketed with ** to signify my deep envy.

This show is sequentially furthest away but in terms of significance and awesomeness is the most important.
