We launched The Dozen last month, and now we’re back for another round. You could call it Best Bets or Top Tips or whatever. We call it The Dozen, whereby we offer a monthly round-up of 12 (or so) of the shows around Nippertown that have got us jazzed the most. One entry per venue. Of course, your results may vary, so feel free to weigh in on what you think we missed.

    I’d put The Holmes Brothers’ Club Helsinki show and Willie Nile’s show at The Linda on this list. Looking forward to Neko Case!!! It’s been six years since she’s played Albany. And Blotto at The Low Beat is going to be quite awesome, too.
