There's a lot happening in music around here -- a lot has happened this week, in fact. In this sprawling metropolitan music scene, with a kaleidoscopic framework of ever-changing people and bands and venues and ideas, a lot happens at once. The only thing we know for sure is that the people who make our city (and cities) so great and engaging -- musicians, venue leaders and the like -- will continue to do just that. So before this week is over, get out there and see something interesting, donate to a touring band's gas fund, help lug gear into the club down the street from your house or go hoarse screaming in an arena. Here's a little list of shows to get you kick-started.
