This weekend’s picks…

There’s actually more shows going on than I realized this weekend. Here are my picks:

Tonight at O’Leaver’s, an evening of twang, headlined by Iowa City’s Shame Train, with Mal Madrigal and Springhill Mine Disaster. $5, 9:30 p.m. Meanwhile, down at Sokol Underground, you’ve got vanilla-flavored alt-rock band The Nadas, coming off a recent loss in a contest to open for Bon Jovi in New York — which pretty much says it all. More Hootie than Hootie ever was. With The Josh Davis Band. $12. 9 p.m. Lincoln’s Scenefest 4 kicks off at Duffy’s with Tie These Hands, Prints of Apple Island, The Goddamn Rights, The Static Octopus and Straight Outta Junior High. $6, 9 p.m.

Saturday night: The multimedia spectacular known as The Autumn Project headlines down at Sokol Underground. I’m listening one of the trio’s tracks now — a long, heady instrumental that would be right at home on The Cure’s Disintegration album. Quiet than loud, you know the drill. Father is guitarist D. Bushon with help from Dapose and Clark Baechle of The Faint, and visuals from Seth Johnson. Get ready to grind. $7, 9 p.m. Meanwhile, Randy Cotton (ex-Ravine, ex-Ritual Device) and his band Members of the Press will grace the O’Leaver’s stage with Darsombra (from Baltimore), Wasteoid and Demon Attack. $5, 9:30 p.m. Night two of Scenefest at Duffy’s will be under way with Robot, Creep Closer!, Producers of the Word, Electric Soul Method, Once A Pawn and Sinikil. $6, 9 p.m.
