Jan. 3-8 in nightlife: Gridiron Sing-off, Pianos Become the Teeth, Legwarmers and more

If you're like us, you'll agree that one of the few new year's resolutions worth sticking to is to see more concerts. So why not start tonight? Here are the highlights from this shortened week:

On Tuesday, Rams Head Live hosts the Gridiron Sing-off, which might not technically be a "concert," but it could be even more entertaining than a typical gig. Members of the playoff-bound Ravens, including secondary specialist Lardarius Webb UPDATE: Ray Rice, will sing their favorite songs. Proceeds benefit Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Rams Head Live's Brandon Linton said at 1:20 p.m. Tuesday that roughly 20 tickets are left.  Tickets are $15.

On Wednesday, Garland of Hours, the D.C. group led by go-to punk cellist Amy Domingues, plays its record-release show (for "Lucidia") at the Black Cat. Tickets are $8.

On Thursday, Baltimore's Days Run Away (who are in the process of recording at Mobtown Studios) will play Recher Theatre. Tickets are $10, unless you're under 21, then it's $13.

On Friday, another Baltimore band — Pianos Become the Teeth — celebrate the release of its new, highly anticipated-in-screamo/post-hardcore-circles album, "The Lack Long After." I wrote a profile on the band and the death of lead singer Kyle Durfey's father that will run later this week in b and the Sun, so keep an eye out for it. Tickets are $10.

On Saturday, area-staples the Legwarmers bring their undying love for the '80s to Rams Head Live. Doors open at 7 p.m. but the tribute band won't take the stage until 9. Tickets are $15.

On Sunday, guitar-hero Johnny Winter finishes his two-day run at Rams Head on Stage in Annapolis. If you miss his Saturday show (8 p.m.), then catch his Sunday night gig. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $45 and more info is available here.
