The cabin fever is setting in and staying in on the weekend is no longer a source of comfort, it's a source of insanity. Luckily the mid-winter show drought seems to have passed. While national acts may not dare travel through these parts at least until late February, tons of local bands are playing. Why not get out of the house, support local music, and have some fun while you're at it? It will make the rest of the winter that much more bearable. I promise.
