MUSIC: Is there a better way to start off a week then with some live music? Check out indie rock group The Wombats, all the way from the UK, but playing tonight at Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St). Tickets are only 94 cents with a purchase of an AWOLNATION ticket, or $9.41-$10 at the door. The music starts at 8 p.m., and with a price like that, you can't go wrong. We'll be at the show as well, so check the City Newspaper music blog Tuesday morning for live photos recapping the night. Head to waterstreetmusic.com for all the info.
MUSIC: Looking for something a little subtler, a little sultrier, a little more suave? Mark Bader will be laying down the sweet jazz lines at Bistro 135 (135 W. Commercial St., East Rochester) starting at 5:30 p.m.. He'll be there every Monday this month, but why put off a good thing? Grab some food and drinks and enjoy, and don't fret the start of another week. Bistro135.net has all the information you'll need.
