Nearly every Monday at the Continental Club. Let us never be so spoiled in the Live Music Capital of the World to not appreciate that Monday residencies at the Continental constitute world-class acts that would qualify as weekend-headliner talent most everywhere else. Downstairs, erstwhile Tail Gators/LeRoi Brothers guitar slinger Don Leady fronts the Cruzers at the 6:30 p.m. happy hour gig, followed by Ameripolitan ringleader Dale Watson at 10 p.m. Upstairs, the Church on Monday crew brings the best of local jazz at 8:30, with psych-Latin ensemble Money Chicha new to the 10:30 p.m. slot. $7 Watson, otherwise no cover. 1315 S. Congress Ave. continentalclub.com.

Also: Bob Schneider’s 8:30 p.m. Lonelyland show anchors the Saxon Pub’s weekly Monday lineup, with Bruce Hughes playing before and the Leavers after. … The best Monday gig on the north end of town is W.C. Clark’s no-cover happy hour at the Roost. … The Mohawk’s indoor stage features local acts Brother Wolf & the Carnivores, Supernomadic andMichael Monroe.
