We’re back with another round of The Dozen. 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.
Here’s The Dozen for June:
