[More added 1/17--check the last slides] With bars open until 4am and politicos ready to party, there will be a lot going on to celebrate Obama's second Inauguration. Even if you missed out on the official ball tickets from the Presidential Inauguration Committee, there are still a lot of events you won't want to miss (in fact, most of the ones here will be better parties, period)! Balls come and go every 4 years, so pay attention to learn what's hot and what's not for 2013.
The Obamas and Bidens have been invited to basically all of the events listed here. They are only obligated to show up to the two official balls but just might pop in when you least expect them to...

Well, with all our big talk about the unstoppable Summer Of Live Music, even we have to admit that as we get into the dog days, things have slowed down a half step. It makes sense, though: a lot of big names are on national or international tours and your favorite bands are playing mega-festivals everywhere from a beach on the Gulf Coast to a field in rural England somewhere. But don't be alarmed; what we're lacking in volume, we're making up for in sheer quality. So just like any other week/weekend, you have no excuse not to get out there and Go See A Show!

Simply put, no matter what genres you are, or aren't, into, you're in for a treat this week, so why not make tonight the night that you Go See A Show? More»
