Monday To-do: Feb. 22

Everyone is talking about upsets today. Not the kind where somebody is mad at somebody else for eating the last pudding pop. The kind where David hands it to Goliath and everybody yells “Oh no he di’int!”

Why? Because Team USA beat Canada yesterday. At hockey. Hockey!

That was pretty much Canada’s last shot at a decent medal count in this year’s Olympics. Sorry, Canada. Hey, you still have Avril and Celine. That’s cool. Right?

Tonight’s live music options are slim which is the norm for a Monday. But there are still a few things going on.

The University Symphony Orchestra is having a concert at the Walton Arts Center tonight at 7:30 p.m. entitled “Transfiguration.” The concert will feature the world premiere of a work by Robert Mueller entitled “Elegiac Verses” for string orchestra, as well as “Death and Transfiguration” by Strauss.

As for other music, Darren Ray is at Pesto, there’s an open mic night at The Perk and it appears as though tonight would be your third-to-last chance to hang out at Opal Fly’s Feel Good Lounge.

There’s more. Here:
