NEMO continues apace tonight with even more bands playing more venues.
A few recommendations:
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals bring their brawny, bluesy, good time rock and roll to the Paradise. Doors at 8:00.
It's a Canadian rockfest at the Abbey Lounge in Cambridge and we're partial to the tender musings of singer-songwriter Julie Doiron who plays at 8:15.
Dr. Octagon (aka Kool Keith) always brings the weird and tonight at the Middle East Downstairs--topping a sturdy hip-hop bill-- should be no different. The good Dr. hits the stage at midnight.
Next door at T.T. the Bear's Place you can stay most of the night and be entertained. But if you want to move around make sure you're at TT's by 11:30 to check out the "Electrified Yankee Roots/Rock" of local quartet Oneside and alt-country upstarts Frank Smith who impressed the other night at the Boston Music Awards.
No matter where you go, enjoy the rock!
