A very wise reader wrote in to suggest that a gift guide that finishes on the 22nd of December really isn't very helpful. With that in mind, I'll be compressing the guide into the next two weekends. This weekend will be Arts and Crafts, the next, Food and Misc. You still have time to suggest ideas.

I've got finals coming up, so let's preview some of this weekend's shows now.

Signal Home, the Story Changes, Fairweather Fan, the Laundromat, and First to Fall play Meadville's The Union Room (287 1/2 Chestnut St., Meadville, Pennsylvania 16335) on December, 8 2007 at 6 pm. $6 cover.

In a change of pace, Seneca's Brother Bean hosts William James and Friends for an evening of spoken word Saturday at 7pm. No cover.. Big show there next week, more to come.

Remora Deign plays an acoustic set at Franklin's Summer House Coffee Roasters on Dec 8 2007 5:00PM. No cover.
