The rain has cleansed the city (ha ha) and we need not of arks to survive, but clubs to hide away in and to take in two (or three) of every band in the world. Here are but a few choices:

Nada Surf headlines an excellent show with Big Thief and Bird of Youth at the 9:30 Club, this Wednesday, June 1st.

And if you would rather go old school, see the excellent Peter Wolf (former J.Geils band vocalist) at the Birchmere also this Wednesday.

Braids weaves their magic at the Comet Ping Pong on Thursday, the 2nd.

The Washington Jewish Music Festival is always fun and kicks off on Friday June 3rd, running all the way to June 15th. See the full schedule here.

Kaytranada comes to the 9:30 Club on Friday the 3rd.

The Slambovian Circus of Dreams pitches tent at Jammin Java on Sunday, June 5th.

The always popular Waxahatchee returns to DC to the Black Cat on Monday the 6th.

Bayonne bounds into the Black Cat on Tuesday the 7th.

King Khan konquers the kountry by storming the Black Cat on Thursday, June 9th.

Beth Orton with Emmy the Great offer an oustanding show at the U Street Music Hall on Saturday, June 11th. Or try Casket Girls at Songbyrd or Eagulls at Rock'n'Roll Hotel. This is one of those nights where I want to have clones.

And Juliana Barwick brings her fine music to the 6th + I Synagogue on Wednesday, June 15th.
