Listening to the new Sonic Youth album, The Eternal, which is slated for release by their new label, Matador Records, June 9. It’s not so much what I expected from SY as much as what I wanted from them — their most tuneful album in years.

Here’s what we got for the weekend…

Tonight at O’Leaver’s, it’s Mt. Fuji recording artist The Whore Moans with Psychic Campfire opening the show and Techlepathy headlining. Michael Jaworski, proprietor of Mt. Fuji, said The Whore Moans “are truly the best live band I’ve ever worked with” — high praise when you consider Jaws worked with Little Brazil for quite a few years. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Over at The Waiting Room it’s the return of folkie singer-songwriter William Elliott Whitmore with Frontier Ruckus and songwriting genius Brad Hoshaw solo. $8, 9 p.m.

At The Barley St., it’s Black Squirrels with Sweet Pea, Traveling Mercies and everyone’s favorite troubadour bartender Kyle Harvey. $5, 9 p.m.

Saturday night The Dinks are playing at The 49’r with Cat Island. This should be raw. Cover will probably be around $5 and things will get rolling at around 10.

Meanwhile, Margot and the Nuclear So & So’s are playing at Slowdown Jr. with Everything Now! $10, 9 p.m.

The Saddle Creek Bar has Sarah Benck with Northampton, Mass. singer/songwriter Chris Pureka and Platte River Rain. $5, 9 p.m.

Sunday night, Landon Hedges in the form of Fine Fine Automobiles is playing O’Leaver’s with David Zollo. $5, 9:30 p.m.
