Here are a few standout picks for live music this weekend, including a way to spend not a dime on Sunday:
Friday: “Dog-inspired” Sad Baxter is playing at the Stone Fox with Beech Benders and the Reneaus. The show starts at 9pm and cover is 5 bones (rimshot!) There’s definitely some Corgi influence on this number:
Deli favorites Guthrie Brown and The Smoking Flowers play with Rales and Nava Hotel at The High Watt starting at 9pm.
Saturday: Comedian and booking mogul Benji Brown is celebrating three decades on this mortal coil at Exit/In with this stellar lineup: The Nearly Deads, Hot Mess Loves You, The Finale, Foreverandnever and The Daily Howl. The show starts at 7pm and costs $10.
Don’t want to cross the river? Wheathouse and Wooly Mamas at the East Room. Listen below to the grungy rock Wooly Mamas are dished out on their brand new EP:
Sunday: Just stay planted in the vicinity of 1604 8th Avenue South. Everything you need for the day is there. Grimey's is hosting Sharon Jone’s Soul Brunch at 1pm, when you can get a sneak preview of Sharon Jone’s new album “Give the People What They Want” and access to free mimosas and a freakin’ biscuit bar. Spend a few hours record shopping/browsing, until 8pm, when Nick D’ and the Believers, The Calvary and Canyon Riders play a no-cover show at the Basement. If you're feeling like a high roller, drop $2 on a draft.
