Decided not to sit in traffic on I-95 or the beach routes? It’s a good weekend to take in some live music at local clubs–chances are lots of people will be out town, making it easier to enjoy a show.

Check out the live music listings below for Thursday, September 2, through Sunday, September 5… always plenty to hear at clubs in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area.
