I'll always been a fan of Looney Tunes, and I think Bugs Bunny is one of the greatest, most versatile comic actors of all time. Whether he's hippity-hopping to international locales, yukking it up through history, spoofing fairy tales, singing opera, or simply cross-dressing to evade Elmer Fudd -- this rabbit could get you laughing dozens of ways while remaining the same cool smart-ass.
See one of the great comic actors in collection of his greatest hits.
Sea Monsters (10pm), Samantha Farrell (8:30pm)
at Precinct, 70 Union Sq, Somerville (Union Sq)
$10-ish / 21+
For about 3 years, Christian McNeill and Jesse Dee used to weekly lead a big rootsy/soulful party with horns, various guests and adoring fans. It was a great way to end the week or begin the week (depending on your perspective).
Like most 3-day weekends, It should be like old times tonight -- except it looks like Jesse may not be there -- but the amazing Joanie Pimentel (ex-SuperHoney) is tonight's guest Sea Monster.
If it's not a good old time for you, it's perfectly acceptable to a good new time.
Get there early, because it should be a full house -- and you'll get to hear the jazzy/folky/soulful Samantha Farrell and her band.
Jason Anderson & The Best (10pm), Ette (9pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$8 / 18+
Although I've seen Jason Anderson play New Year's Eve gigs in the area for several years, I still don't think I know his story. Anderson and band excel at feel-good folk rock, and Ette reminds me of when I first heard The Jayhawks. Not a bad little night...
at Green Dragon Tavern, 11 Marshall St, Boston (Haymarket)

My dilemma is whether to take advantage of George Washington's birthday with the Sea Monsters or The Honors.
They're both practically 3-day weekend options, because I don't want to attenuate my good times. The Honors rock out almost every Sunday, but I'm loath to awake Monday morning with pounding head and cotton-dry mouth.
Tonight could be wall-to-wall uber-catchy indie-rock that bounces and jangles and swoons in wonderful ways. Although the band may not think it's a benefit, I'm guessing the place isn't packed like a Friday night.
