Looked at the listings for today and saw some pretty good choices if you want to head out tonight -
Joe McMurian has begun a week residency at Al's Den, with special guests each night ... 7pm, no cover
It's Blue Monday with Lloyd Jones at the Muddy Rudder - always an easy hang with Mr. Jones and whatever friends drop by this cozy Sellwood tavern ... 7:30 pm, no cover
At O'Connor's in Multnomah Village, check out Gary Ogan in concert with Dave Captein, and Panhandler's Union, 7pm, $15
The excellent double-bill of Rhett Miller and Erin McKeown are at Mississippi Studios ... 8 pm, $15
.... and, the March Fourth Marching Band's Tenth Anniversary show continues tonight at the Crystal Ballroom ... always a blast! ... 9 pm, $25
Picking one of these is a pretty fine way to start your week ... and a good reason not to hate Mondays!
