It’s a busy weekend for shows.
Tonight is the long-awaited Decemberists concert at Sumtur Amphitheater. The band puts on a fantastic show (Their 2011 concert at The Holland was one of my faves). Opening is Sirius XM’s 2015 Artist of the Year Dan Mangan + Blacksmith. Based on what I’ve seen posted in Facebook, ticket sales have been brisk; this show should be huge. 8 p.m., $35. BTW, this is a rain-or-shine event.
Also tonight, Austin indie/garage band Beth Israel plays at The Sweatshop Gallery. Also on the bill are Telepathy Problems (last show for now); Working Man (new trio featuring Dereck Higgins); and Chalant. $7, 9 p.m.
Meanwhile, over at Reverb, St. Louis punk band Radkey headlines with local boys Low Long Signal. $10, 9 p.m.
And over at fabulous O’Leaver’s Comme Reel (Mike Saklar and Co.) headlines a show that also includes Relax, It’s Science, and Laika the Space Bitch. $5, 9:30 p.m.
Tomorrow night (Saturday) is the big Mini-Maha Festival at Loess Fest at River’s Edge Park (That park on the other side of the Bob Kerrey Bridge). The free concert features Ben Kweller, The Dodos and Oketa. 7 p.m., rain or shine.
Also Saturday night Copeland (Tooth & Nail) headlines at The Waiting Room with Anniversaire. $20 today/ $22 DOS. 8 p.m.
And it’s Ukulele night at Reverb Lounge Saturday with Danielle Ate the Sandwich along with All Young Girls Are Machine Guns. Also on the bill (though probably not playing a uke) is Aly Peeler. $7, 9 p.m.
And finally, Glass Animals plays at The Waiting Room Lounge Sunday night with Gilligan Moss. 8 p.m. and SOLD OUT.
That’s all I got for this weekend. If I missed your show, put in the comments section. Have a great weekend and don’t forget about this BIG show going on next Wednesday at Reverb Loung…
