The opening of the new Fillmore Silver Spring serves as a good opportunity to take inventory of the other top venues in the area. In today’s Weekend section, there’s a run down of what we love — and what might change — about the D.C. area’s top 10 live music spots.

Also in the Weekend section, reviews of new albums by chillwave breakout star Neon Indian, electro-soul duo AM & Shawn Lee, neo-soul singer Rahsaan Patterson, new wave greats Blondie and indie-rapper Serengeti, all of whom will be performing in the area within the next week.
