For many of you, this might just be a regular Saturday night, in which case you'll find a suitable show -- perhaps Big Sandy or the Generators -- and go out for a couple drinks and life will be normal. For others, and on the boat in which I sit, you've had a couple weeks off of work (more or less, working from home is funny that way) or your household has been plagued by the winter illnesses being passed around and you are coming to the sudden realization that tonight is the last real night to party your socks off before Monday morning comes and bears down on you like an anvil, in which case, you might consider the Music Box to see all of your local music buds crush it on that amazing stage or go really rock out at the Tower Bar with Dead On A Wire and others. I don't know what you'll choose tonight, but I can say with some certainty you will see me out on the town living it up before Monday morning's email unleashes its wrath.
