The Adams Morgan Summer Concert Series is back, and a bit early this year! Perhaps in a bid to avoid some of the more problematic sweat-weather of July? If so, good call. The music happens on each Saturday beginning at 5:00PM. The location is BB&T Bank Plaza at the corner of 18th St and Columbia Rd NW. You can absolutely take the 42 bus there, as well as the 90s buses, the L2, and the Circulator.
From the organizers:
"All concerts are FREE and occur from 5 PM to 7 PM at the plaza in front of the BB&T Bank at the corner of Columbia and Adams Mill Roads, NW.
