Weekly Music Calendar: June 14th-20th

With the Northside Festival (schedule posted last week) extending until Sunday, this week's calendar will commence (except for one show) with concerts on June 15th.

Caveat: Not all of the venues below -- namely bars like Spike Hill -- have published concert schedules, but there's a fair chance that live music will be booked, especially towards the end of the week. Most bar shows and Bell House 21+; Studio B 19+ (21 to drink); all others 18+/16+ or all ages. Starred shows represent my picks.
