The week in nightlife: Jan. 25 - Jan. 30, Liz Phair, The Bridge, Pratt Libraries' Black and White Party

It's a busy week at Rams Head Live, starting with tonight's Liz Phair show. Then following Anberlin on Wednesday, and the Bacon Bros. over in Annapolis Friday, the venue will host the release party for locals the Bridge's new album, "National Bohemian" on Saturday. Elsewhere there are options for both metalheads (see O Pioneers!!!) and preppy dressers (Black & White Party).

On Tuesday, Liz Phair performs at Rams Head Live, 20 Market Place. The "Flower" singer said the show will be heavy on "Guyville" not "Funstyle" tracks.

On Wednesday the Toronto by way of Texas metalheads O Pioneers!!! perform at Charm City Art Space, 1731 Maryland Avenue. Doors open at 7 p.m. Important message from the venue: "In case you're wondering, yes, CCAS has heat."

On Thursday Stillwater Artisanal Ales hosts a $60 beer dinner at Alonso's, 415 W. Cold Spring Lane.  Brewer Brian Strumke will be present. Begins at 6 p.m. Gunky's Basement returns to the Charles with Ridley Scott's original "Alien." Gainesville's veteran ska-punks Less than Jake perform at Sonar.

On Friday Deep in the Game's Adam Schwarz spins at the Use Your Illusion party at Club Phoenix, 1 West Biddle. The Bacon Brothers perform at Rams Head on Stage in Annapolis. Be on the look out for our Q&A with Kevin and Michael. 

On Saturday locals The Bridge will release their new album, "National Bohemian," at Rams Head Live before going on tour. Over at Bourbon Street, Dutch DJ Angerfist headlines a hardcore techno dance party. $20 in advance. Pratt Libraries host their annual Black and White Party at the Central Library. Tickets are $60.

On Sunday there's little happening. Best stay in and rest for Monday's epic Girl Talk show.

The problem with this layout is that there's too much stuff to click on.

Seriously, who's ever going to click on all those links? The worst blogs are the ones that make every other word a hyperlink to another website so by the time you finish reading a sentence, you've forgotten what you were reading, or why you were reading it in the first place.

Hey, this article is great but you know what would make it better? If I could read another article in the middle of it.

Dear god people will find literally anything to complain about.

Dear KGM801,

The problem with your post is that there's not enough stuff to click on.

Seriously, who's ever going to read your comments without a ton of links to click on?
