And so a week has passed, time marches on. A list of music is strewn about at your fingertips. Please indulge in the ease of keeping boredom at bay, partake in the music as it’s currently all around you. Bands will be linked in advance so that you may preview their style, venue links are listed at the bottom of the page and the double asterisk denotes a confirmed all ages show.
