Labor Day: you’ve got plans.

The day after Labor Day: totally open.

Might as well fill it with coffee-rubbed ribs and a brass band.

This course of action brought to you courtesy of Thunder Road, a new bi-level music club that’s also way more than a bi-level music club, opening next Tuesday in Somerville. (Here, have a slideshow.)

And allow us to illustrate further through the power of numbers:

Floors: still 2

Number of TVs downstairs streaming the action from the stage upstairs: 3

Wooden bars per floor: 1

Tap lines at each: 16

Number of those lines reserved for wine: 2

Probability of a Porter Square Porter happening before the show: high to very high

Nights per week featuring live music: 7

Nights per week dubbed “Fat Tuesday” featuring a New Orleans–style brass band: 1

Decade whose hits will be spun by a DJ every Thursday: 1990s

Odds that “Billy Ray Cyrus Wednesdays” will become a thing: < 0%

Number of ribs in the coffee-rubbed bourbon BBQ ribs: enough

Ratio of live jazz bands to breakfast quesadillas at brunch: 1:1

Chance you’ll be able to live with that ratio: 100%
