Please note that while we make an effort to confirm whether or not shows are happening on religious holidays such as today and delete those we know or suspect are not, many clubs and bands have no reliable method of updating their listings. Thus in some cases regular weekly shows (indicated with an asterisk before the listing) such as open mics and jams may have been cancelled without the club or performers bothering to effectively let people know. It’s always a good idea to call ahead.
