August’s best concerts

My Morning Jacket, performing at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Aug. 12, has a well-earned reputation as one of the best live acts around. (Dave Vann)
August brings an end to some of our favorite free concert series, so be sure to head out to Fort Reno and Fort Dupont. It's also when the big sheds are busy, as My Morning Jacket, Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow and Steve Miller come to town. And there are always the tiny shows, such as punk lifers M.O.T.O. playing in a record store and noisy Baltimore band Dope Body at Comet Ping Pong.

Here’s our list of 20 top concerts in the D.C. area in August.
