By Chip Chandler — Digital Content Producer

The shortest month of the year is positively exploding with entertainment options. Make your plans now!

A few notes: 

  • Click the event title for more information (where available).
  • Except for special events, I'm limiting the concert listings to touring bands to make this list somewhat more manageable; check our Friday music listings every week to see where all of your local favorites are playing.
  • Watch for a Valentine's Day roundup later in February.
  • This list is fluid. Check back for updates, and check the weekly event roundups every Thursday.
  • All listings are subject to change.
