Is there anything better than live music? Don’t answer that. For me, the answer is complicated (everything is complicated). But these venues are simply great and you should go to them because support local and support music and support all the things that make YOU happy. Happy birthday, Kurt Cobain! What would have happened to you if you’d lived to see the zoo in which we live? Don’t answer that.

Saturday, February 22:
Proving that 90s nostalgia is not just extremely fun but profitable, Maggie Shot Burns is yet another cleverly named 90s tribute band ready to play all your favorites at Dirty Water starting at 10 p.m. Don some plaid and dust off a choker. Listen.

Thursday, February 27:
Gentle reminder: Do you have tickets to the Air Sex Championships, um, coming this March 4? This delightfully campy event promises to arouse, tingle and please until you can’t take it any more. More info. Tickets.
