Image 1. Party on:
Jack of the Wood likes to get things rolling early. The downtown brew pub hosts a packed night of eclectic performances on Friday, Nov. 16, kicking off with poppy folk songstress Ten Cent Poetry (Chelsea LaBate) at 5pm. The music resumes at 9pm with The River Rats (funk rock) and closes out with David Earl and the Plowshares' bluesy rock ‘n’ roll.

Image 3. If it’s too loud:
Then put in some earplugs, because rock ‘n’ roll tends to be that way. Apothecary hosts a grungy night of explosive guitars with “local facemelters” Doomster, “new local heart throbs” That’s a Thing and dissonant Boston-based quartet Pile on Wednesday, Nov. 14.
