Have a great weekend!

This weekend has a lot going on show-wise. Here are a few highlights:

TONIGHT:

At the 5 Spot, The Whole Fantastic World will transform into their alter-ego “Friends of Lizzy: A Tribute to Thin Lizzy.” They’ll be joined by the awesome Heartbeater and Gentlemen Divers. 9pm, $5.

Or if you wanna get SMOOTH, check out Space Capone and Yacht Rock Revue at Mercy Lounge. It will be the SMOOTHEST thing you’ve ever seen. $10 advance, and … a little more at the door… doors at 8pm. And Drew will no doubt be sporting his Yacht Rock hat:

Also, the Silver Seas are at the Basement. It’s their album release show- $7, 9pm.

SATURDAY:

Frontier Ruckus will be invading The End, along with the Kopecky Family Band. 9pm, $5.

I will most likely be attending the Brendan Benson show at the Basement. The tix are available at Grimey’s and are $12, but expected to sell out by Sat. afternoon or earlier. What can I say? I really dug his new album!

SUNDAY:

I will be taking pics at the Sleigh Bells show at The End. Nerve City and PO PO round out that bill. Apparently it’s already sold out… I really had no idea they were such a big deal. Cool?

Also, Happy Birthday Jack White.

Have a great weekend!
