Monday To-do: March 22

What a weekend.

First, we had a foot of snow dump on us after everyone had already gotten out their spring t-shirts and skirts. Then, about half of the country’s NCAA basketball brackets were completely ruined when Kansas lost to Northern Somebody. And finally, health-care reform passed last night sending people on both sides of the debate into a complete frenzy.

If you need a break from all the snowman stories, grumpy basketball fans or listening to arguments over whether or not Bart Stupak is really a baby killer, there’s plenty of cool things happening in Fayetteville tonight to get your mind in a different spot.

At George’s, Boise Idaho’s Finn Riggins shares the stage with locals Hosta and Where’s Lawrence. It’s 18 and up and the cover is $5.

Smoke & Barrel also has a big show tonight. Seattle’s Brent Amaker & The Rodeo are in town. Bring your boots and your tappin’ foot. The ROX open.

On the metal front, Rogue has a five-band show tonight with North Carolina’s U.S. Christmas and San Francisco’s Black Cobra. Locals Deadeyejack, Sinking South, and Friday Maybe Saturday open.

There’s more. Here:
