Tuesday, December 3 – At the Broadway Oyster Bar, there’s double the music with a double bill of great local talent.

Friday, December 6 – Get to the Blueberry Hill Duck Room and check out the Nerf Herder! They are “pioneers of the late 90’s pop-punk and geek rock movement” (We didn’t know that was a thing either).
