It’s time once again for the monthly calendar.  December looks pretty strong with good shows almost every night, and with some nights sporting two or three really good shows opposite each other.  When that happens, just pick one, because when you have multiple good choices, what ever choice you make will be a good one.

Things around Christmas and the week after have yet to be posted, but they will be, and this calendar will be updated periodically to include those shows.  I’m not including New Years Eve shows here, but will have a separate post about them later.
