Man, Largo is outstanding this week, with totally amazing shows back to back to back to back. So many, in fact, they couldn't all be listed here. But that's OK, because there's a hefty helping of other great shows all over town that should fill in this lazy gap between Thanksgiving and Christmas / Hanukkah for you quite nicely. If you've got a show you're sneaking off to see, why not spread the holiday cheer with the other great LAist readers? Hit me with an email here and we'll talk. FOREVER.
