11 Shows Around the Bend

God's America @ Warehouse Next Door (March 2006)
Now that Fort Reno is over for the summer (and that summer itself is almost over, blargh), we'll soon resort to attending shows at indoor venues. Last week was a great one for such shows and I was lucky enough to spend Sunday evening enjoying an all-DC bill of Coup Sauvage + the Snips, Queer Pressure and Hand Grenade Job at the Black Cat. (FYI, the show was a benefit for Collective Action for Safe Spaces as part of their effort to bring Right Rides to DC. I believe you can still donate to that cause.)

While at this show, I was reminded that I haven't done a music round-up post in a while (or everrrrrr?). So, here you go. 11 shows in DC that you should check out, from now until early November.
