No one can say there is nothing to do this time through the early week. Music abounds - in at least one slightly unusual locale.

While Gracie's is a notable stop for various foods and multiple libations, their music fare tends to be of local origin. Not the case Monday night as Chicago's Henhouse Prowlers bring their take on bluegrass into town for a free 9 p.m. concert. Check out their live sound right here:

Another Monday night option is the old-school ska rock of The Toasters, who will be down at Burt's Tiki Lounge. 

On Tuesday, New York rock 'n' rollers moe. hit The Depot for the second straight winter tour. Pictured above, the band is worth checking out. I've seen them a few times over the years, and while I think they work better outdoors, The Depot was a perfect place for the high-energy band last year. If you're going, expect a dancing, toking crowd, lots of music and a long Wednesday morning. Tickets are $20 in advance, $24 at the door. It's a two-set concert, with music slated to start at 8 p.m.
