Happy 2019! It has been a somewhat low-key start to the year in terms of shows but we’re back with a bang, though sadly including a farewell, this weekend. It finally got real cold, so wrap up warm and let these acts get your blood flowing.
No beating around the bush this week, here are the best shows of the weekend!
