Band wars and a a lot more are happening this week. It should go without saying that if you do go out, that you take Covid precautions including proper social distancing and wearing a mask, and staying home if you aren’t feeling well.
 As usual, there  are plenty of open mics happening , beginning with a comedy open mic at Good Times on Tuesday, Oct. 20 and an open mic at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, also on Tuesday.
