As we leave Columbus Day Weekend in our rearview mirror and snap back into the reality that midterms occur more often than just “mid-term”, the stretch between now and Thanksgiving can seem a little daunting. Luckily, D.C. provides great opportunities for a weeknight escape or a weekend endeavor that won’t jeopardize your next-day productivity. Here are a couple of the concerts and shows that caught my eye that are coming up in the very near future:
Aaron Carter- Sunday, October 20th, 7:30 PM; Fillmore Silver Spring
Do you like Candy? Yes, you read this correctly: the Aaron Carter is not only still touring, but is coming to Silver Spring in a week. While I would assume his voice is a little deeper since the last time we heard from him, I’m sure it will still be a great show. If not, it’s just time for us washed up ’90s kids to relive our glory days.
Cold War Kids- Friday October 25th, 8:00 PM; 9:30 Club
After selling out the 24th (show starts at 7:00), the 9:30 Club brought back the Cold War Kids for a second night on Friday. If indie-rock is your thing, then this is a can’t-miss concert. The only question is, if Cold War Kids keeps getting more popular, can it still be considered indie?
Chance the Rapper- Sunday, October 27th, 7:00 PM; Fillmore Silver Spring
A lesser known, yet still extremely talented rapper, Chance will provide you with some rhymes that rival anything you’ll read in your English textbooks on a Sunday night.
Drake- Thursday, October 31st, 7:00 PM; Verizon Center
Tired of trick-or-treating? Go spend your last night of October with Drizzy Drake himself, and hear all of your favorite party songs live.
Barenaked Ladies- Monday, November 4th, 7:00 PM; Lincoln Theatre
Yet another late-nineties sensation returns to D.C. to break us away from our stressful school schedules, and bring us back to much, much simpler times.
These are just a few of the dozens of shows that you can find in D.C. during the fall. Be sure to check out the venues schedules (all linked above but this is a video a of cat just because) so you don’t miss your favorite band!
