Time for the weekend.

Tonight (Friday) there’s a special Love Drunk Music Video Showcase at an Airbnb Pop-up Shop at 12th and Jackson (I have no idea what building it’s actually in. Look for signs!). Love Drunk, in case you didn’t know, is a one-take video project helmed by Django Greenblatt-Seay. Django’s shot 128 of these one shot videos (which you can see here) including for two folks who will be performing at tonight’s showcase — singer/songwriter Patrick Mainelli and James Maakestad, who you might remember from Bear country and Gus & Call. This one starts at 6. Free entry. Free booze.

By the way, it’s Benson First Friday.

Saturday night Bloodcow headlines at The Reverb Lounge in Benson. No, this is not the band’s album release party for Crystals & Lasers — that’s not until next month. This is just another reason to blow off some metal steam. Also on the bill are All Young Girls Are Machine Guns and Lincoln art rockers Universe Contest. $7, 9 p.m.

Also Saturday night 1980s-era punk band The Queers play at The Hideout on South 72nd. I’m told The Hideout is now under new management! Also on the bill are Masked Intruder, Direct Hit and The Ridgeways. Tickets are $12 in Adv., $15 DOS. The show starts at 8 p.m.

Meanwhile, over at Fabulous O’Leaver’s its a full bill headlined by Sean Pratt and the Sweats with Annalibera, Mike Schlesinger, and Manic Pixie Dream Girls. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Did I forget your show? Put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend!
