Should be a great week ahead with some amazing music by the Charlie Hunter Trio tonight and Saturday night, some snow in the forecast, and Mardi Gras on Tuesday. After picking up a few inches of snow overnight, this weekend looks like a return to winter with the chance of more fresh stuff throughout the weekend. There is a chance of some accumulation Sunday night through Tuesday night, might be just what we need!

Saturday, Mar. 5 – Sons Of The Addicted @ The Moon. 9pm. Ridgway-based rock band. The following is an entertaining description from their website, Their inspiration “draws from four decades of musical landscapes woven together with a unique and quirky twist. The sound is fresh with flashback moments of Zappa, Incubus, Primus, Tool, Satriani, Jean-Luc Ponty and others haunting the memory modes of your brain’s opiate receptors into believing that you’ve heard this music before… but where? Nowhere! That’s because Sons of the Addicted’s melodic songwriting and hypnotic rhythms are distinctly their own and sounds like no other music being heard today.”
Tuesday, Mar. 8 – Mardi Gras Party with Joint Point @ The Sheridan Opera House. $12. 9pm. “Local farovite band JOINT POINT and the Sheridan Arts Foundation present an evening of fun and celebration for Mardi Gras 2011 at the historic Sheridan Opera House!” Will be a complete evening of music, costumes and themed festivities.
