Friday nights are generally everyone’s favorite day of the week to spend a late night downtown — it’s the end of the week and you’ll have time to nurse that hangover in bed because Saturday mornings practice more patience than those demanding work days. As a journalist, I, for one, am one of those lucky people who get to mix work and play. On one hand, it allows me to call going to shows “work.” On the other, I’m technically required to work late nights and weekends.
For students, a category of which I also belong to, Fridays are an especially strategic time to take a well-deserved study break. This past weekend, on Feb. 5, I found myself taking one of these study breaks at Stubb’s, engulfed in a packed room with the wood floor of their indoor stage, watching local acts Yuma and Major Grizz put on interesting twists on otherwise conventional genres of music.
