The ten best concerts of the week: Nov. 19-23

Another weekend in the books, another week ahead. But oh what a kickass week this one will be. For starters, not only will it be abbreviated for most of us, thanks to the annual Tryptophan-filled holiday devoted to overeating and football, but next to perhaps New Year's Eve, but this is also the biggest and most hotly anticipated party week of the entire year. With that in mind, you'll find an abundance of great music to soundtrack your excursions/indiscretions. And while we've got it all laid out in our concert calendar, here, we've done the heavy lifting for you and narrowed it down to the ten best concerts of the week. Keep reading to see what's goodness awaits you.
