Well, we made it to the weekend after all. The show list isn’t very crowded, but it’s pretty good.
Tonight at The Waiting Room, it’s Kansas City’s Vedera — who were just here in February, and who still sound like a cross between Bettie Serveert and Metric (I think I compared them to Denali before). Once again, they’re playing with Lincoln’s Tie These Hands. Spring Gun also is on the bill. $8, 9 p.m. (though Waiting Room shows are becoming notorious for starting an hour or more late — better to sell booze with, I suppose, and who can blame them now that they own the bar).
Saturday night it’s not only Cinco de Mayo, but it’s also the long-awaited CD release show for Coyote Bones’ Gentleman on the Rocks, which Lazy-i has long declared as the best non-Creek local release so far this year. Sharing the stage at The Waiting Room will be two other CoCo Art collective members — Flowers Forever featuring Derek Pressnall of Tilly and the Wall, and Dereck Higgins, who was among the plethora of supporting musicians who appear on Gentleman… $7, 9 p.m.
Meanwhile, just a hop, skip and jump down Maple Street at PS Collective, Black Squirrels are celebrating the release of their debut CD with the help of Midwest Dilemma and poet Todd Robinson. $5, 9 p.m.
