The Concert Calendar

Disclaimer time! We try to make the HereForTheBands concert calendar as complete and accurate as possible. However not every music venue in the area is on the calendar, schedules change at the last minute, we intentionally leave out anything that's not a concert (e.g. karaoke, dance, musical theatre), and on top of that we probably miss all sorts of shows. If you want to be sure, check with the venue (or look for a Facebook event).

Although our calendar is centered on Washington, DC it includes venues from as far South as Richmond, VA to as far North as Harrisburg, PA. If you don't want to see all those shows (and most people don't) you can use the selecter to the right to filter the calendar. Use the top row to pick one region, the bottom row to select multiple regions at once.
