It’s another somewhat quiet weekend musicwise with no big indie bands in town but still some great shows worth seeing. Two of those shows, in fact, are at The Barley Street Tavern. The first is At Land, a trio featuring Doug Kabourek of Fizzle Like a Flood fame. You’ll be hearing a lot more about Fizzle as that project’s latest release, Choice Kills Response, is looking at an Oct. 7 CD release. Until then, you’ve got Doug’s heavier project burning up Barley Street tonight with Ryan Kosola and Dirty River Ramblers. $5, 9 p.m.

Also tonight Star Anna & the Laughing Dogs play at O’Leaver’s with Field Club. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Tomorrow night it’s the heroic return of It’s True to the Barley Street Tavern with Katey Sleeveless, Platte River Rain and Drone City. This will be a capacity crowd, so I suggest you arrive early if you want to get in. $5, 9 p.m.

Also Saturday night Honeybee & Hers is celebrating its album release with a special show at DP Muller Studio, 6066 Maple Street in beautiful Benson. Also on the bill is St. Louis’ Cassie Morgan and the Lonely Pine. The show starts at 9 and is free, though they’ll be taking donations (give it up, cheapskates).

Finally, Simon Joyner and his band is in the lineup for a house show tomorrow night at 3803 So. 25th St. that also features L. Eugene (Lonnie) Methe, Ed Rooney and Californians Whitman and No Babies. Mr. Methe says the show starts at 9 p.m. sharp and to bring cash to spend on the touring bands’ merch (always a good policy).

That’s all I got. Got any better ideas, put them on the webboard. See you at the show…
