This week promises to be one of the finest weeks of the year as far as live music goes. Long Winters, The Faint, Cat Power, Tapes n’ Tapes, and the Little Ones all visit our fair city this snowy week. Local boys and one of my favorites Dusty 45′s are at the Tractor for an Animal Rescue Benefit (which means it is obviously a great place to pick up chicks). Something to see everday except, well, today.
