If you hear about something that I haven't added below, please drop me a line (usinnb the Contact Us link above or otherwise), give me the details, and I'll try to add it to the post. Look for the + for new gigs or changes to existing gigs made after the initial publication of the post (if you're receiving by email, we can't update the email, but will let you know of major corrections). As always, let me know if any repeating gigs below are no longer happening, or if I got something wrong of a gig that is.

MARCH 16 UPDATE: You can assume that ALL of the gigs in this post are have been cancelled or postponed after Monday's announcement that bars and restaurants must close except for takeout and delivery to combat community spread of the coronavirus.  Many of them had already taken that step.
