A Super week

As you'd expect by now, the New England Patriots will be the center of attention Sunday in the Coppertop, so no band will have to compete with the drubbing the team delivers to the New York Giants during the Super Bowl.

But there's plenty of music leading up to the Big Game, starting Thursday with Rainy Day Activities. The young North County band has a good ear for classic rock,  which comes across in some interesting covers (the Rolling Stones' "Angie"....nice!) and  solid originals.

On Friday night, Brian & Captain return to the Coppertop with their acoustic show.

And Fred Ellsworth is back in the room with his House Shakers on Saturday. Ellsworth, pictured above with bassist Mike Sisto, definitely keeps his band rooted in the blues, but the guitarist can throw a few curves too. He delivered a pretty infectious  "Last Train to Clarksville" last time he brought the band to the Coppertop.

All three shows start at 8 p.m.

So getting back to the Bowl, in honor of the Pats' QB Tom Brady, Sunday afternoon lift tix are $12 for those arriving in a Patriots jersey. And if the Patriots' defense crushes the Giants, we all benefit Monday. Day time lift tickets on Monday will cost whatever the Giants score _ which should be zero, right? Those Monday day tickets will not exceed their normal costs should the Giants somehow score that many points _ but really, what are the odds of that happening?
