Simon Joyner said way too much to get into one article, so the overflow went into this week’s Over the Edge column. The headline: The Woody Allen of Indie Folk. It has to do with a comment Joyner made about record labels and his music and the fans’ role in supporting art over the long haul. The column is in this week’s issue of The Reader, or you can read it online right here. Joyner and his band celebrate the release of their latest album, Ghosts (Sing, Eunuchs! 2012) tomorrow night (Friday, Aug. 3) at The Sydney.

The weekend starts early tonight at fabulous O’Leaver’s for what will no doubt be a raucous display of public inebriation combined with dollops of rock music and sexiness. That’s right, Little Brazil returns to the house that Frederick Pabst built (or maybe it was Joseph Schlitz?). The party starts at 9:30 with Underwater Dream Machine, followed by Millions of Boys. $5. Free parking. Go.
Also tonight, The Bishops and All Young Girls Are Machine Guns are at The Sydney. $5, 9 p.m.
