Happy Friday Party People. It's the last weekend in January already, and don't let the spring show announcements trick you into planning for the future. Because then you'd miss the Lemonheads tomorrow at Old Rock House and Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra playing a new score in Edwardsville tonight and a whole slew of other things. Eight more of them are listed below -- if you are involved with or know of something fantastic we've missed, please, please, please let us know in the comments. It's a debate, people, not an ultimatum.
