For some top notch entertainment, White Cotton Panties are playing at Norton's Pub (1730 Goodman St.) The only thing to taint an otherwise excellent evening is Rist Rocket as an opening band.

Tonight's good bet at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Eddie Nebula & The Plague with Dead Blue Hand.

Last but not least, Gaylord, California is Not an Island and The Dimitri Gurevitch Quintette will be at the First Annual Socialist Ball at Red (171 St. Paul)

Oh yeah, and Better Days will be at Spur of the Moment (4670 Dewey Ave.)

Yeesh! Didn't anybody hear of Friday?

Meanwhile, in the middle of another town, Moxy Fruvous will be at The Union Ballroom in SUNY Genesseo. See WBER's information page for this concert for more information.

I've got a luke-warm interest in seeing Dido with Tara MacLean at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.)

The Nuts & Bolts Improv Troupe will again be at Club Vibes (150 Andrews St.) at 8:00 p.m. It's $5 to get in and it's way totally worth it.

go for long walks on the beach
touch it; invite others to do the same
sing karaoke
drink the little bugger under the table
hug it and kiss it and call it Ralph
write a weekly webpage
make monkey love
