Griz-ly Business

As we inch closer and closer to the weekend, the music scene is our knight in shining armor, so to speak, offering some respite from the humdrum of our work week. On Friday, the House of Blues has two cool shows, with Grizfolk in the Voodoo Room while the Adicts tearing things up in the main concert hall. Meanwhile the Kickback --- whose debut was produced by Spoon's Jim Eno -- rock out at Soda Bar. Local guys the Bertos play at Tower Bar after a very long hiatus, and Big Head Todd & the Monsters bring their own flavor of college rock to the Belly Up. Last but certainly not least, Hot Water Music frontman and the dude behind many of the Revival Tours, Chuck Ragan, returns to the Casbah. With locals Pall Jenkins and Mike Pope as support, this is definitely your chance to see the gentler side of these gents.
