We can't wait to see these fellas live... fingers crossed they do some/all of their Nashville covers.

SO excited that one of our favorite voices of the past few years is back and touring again!

What better way to spend a spring afternoon than on Kingman Island in DC for amazing music featuring The Hackensaw Boys, Vandaveer, and more!

In the need to experience some somber, beautiful, and bittersweet music, then go to this show (Listen to "Remember When I Broke Your Heart" to prepare!)

May 4: ABC's Nashville, The Lincoln Theatre
You read that correctly -- stars from ABC's wonderful drama are touring. This will be so much better than any American Idol tour ever was. The ONLY downside is that the best head of hair in Hollywood will not be with them.

May 7 & 8: HAIM, 9:30 Club
Our favorite group of sisters is back in DC for another killer live set -- wonder if they'll grab audience members' hats (or shoes) this time too..

These fellas are most certainly worth the drive to Falls Church. We promise.

Start prepping for Sweetlife Festival with All Things Go's pre-party!

May 20: MØ, U Street Music Hall
Catch one of our artists to watch in 2014 before she blows up!  

May 20 & 21: Tegan & Sara with Lucius and with The Courtneys, 9:30 Club
Boy oh boy are we obsessed with this pairing. Prepare yourselves for TWO nights of wonderful music and equally wonderful coordinating outfits (looking at you, Lucius).

May 23: Ingrid Michaelson, The Lincoln Theatre
A staple of most TIOJ playlists, Ingrid Michaelson is not to be missed! Here's hoping she bring some of her little human friends to help her open up her set!

May 23: Chatham County Line, The Hamilton
What a perfect venue for these North Carolinian bluegrassy boys!

Grab a gaggle of best friends, hawaiian shirts, and a delicious picnic and get summer started off right with this show!

June 14: Tim McGraw, Jiffy Lube Live
See one of country music's most classic and standup fellas! (Also, when I saw Tim McGraw in ninth grade, Faith Hill came out to sing with him. Not promising that she'll be there too, but just saying.)

June 16: The Knocks with ASTR, 9:30 Club
Put on some comfortable shoes to enjoy our workout/party playlist go-tos The Knocks!

June 18: Kaiser Chiefs, 9:30 Club
Last time we saw Kaiser Chiefs -- they performed on the bars of 9:30 Club. Fingers crossed they do it again for this show!

This classic pop duo is bound to make your dreams come true!

Our newest favorite is going to be the MOST perfect way to spend a chill summer evening.

July 21 & 22: Lionel Ritchie and CeeLo Green, Wolf Trap
If this isn't the strangest combination, we don't know what is. Still, it's worth seeing if CeeLo brings his fembots with him.

This is quite the perfect summer country concert lineup... and you don't have to go all the way to Bristow to get your fix!
