Few experiences are more satisfying than seeing great live music. And we’re lucky to be in Boston, where shows play in and around the city every night of the week. Truth be told, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of them all. That’s where we come in, with a weekly list of performances that are worthy of your attention. So get out there and take in some live music — just don’t forget your ear plugs.
