Things to Do

New shows: Cat Power, Lucero, Mike Cooley of the Drive-By Truckers solo show and more

It's less than a week now until Christmas. Did you get all your shopping done yet? Ah, don't beat yourself up. Neither have we. If you're like us, you've probably got some people on your list who are just impossible to buy for, yes? If so, here's an idea, one that won't require you to brave the masses of materialistic maniacs at the mall. Why not give the gift of music? Right? So simple. So obvious. And lucky you, there's some great shows going on sale this week. Cat Power at the Ogden, Lucero at the Bluebird, Mike Cooley at the Larimer and more. Keep reading for more info on those shows and this week's other new dates, as well as local radio playlists and a rundown of the week's top album sellers.
