Let the weekend begin….

…starting tonight at fabulous O’Leaver’s where Lupines headline. Also on the bill are Lincoln bands Laughing Falcon and Falling Distance. $5, 9 p.m.

Saturday night’s main event is London indie folk band Daughters (4AD Records). The band’s most recent album, Not to Disappear, came out in January, which Pitchfork said “… spans that gap between the very real drudgery of everyday life, and the more potent stories we tell ourselves when times are bleak.Rating: 6.7. I try not to miss 4AD bands when they come through town. Opening is Vancouver Sleep Clinic (Sony), described as a “rising Australian singer, songwriter and producer.” Where’s the Canada connection? $16 Adv/$18 DOS. 9 p.m.

Also Saturday night, Jason Meyer’s new band Wolf Dealer plays O’Leaver’s. Says Jason: “Wolf Dealer is a rock music band made up of old guys that have been in a bunch of local bands. Talking Mountain, Sun-Less Trio, Carsinogents, Virgasound, Skull Fight, Fonzarellies, Thuggs, the Cuterthans.” What more do you want? Also on the bill are The Vahnevants (Des Moines), Haunted Gauntlet (M34N STR33T/ex-Oh Possum), and the Afghan Hounds (Lineman’s Rodeo).. $5, 9:30.

Sunday night post rock duo El Ten Eleven headlines at Slowdown Jr., with Bayonne and Fontenelle. $12 Adv/ $15 DOS. Early 8 p.m. start time.

Also Sunday night La Bouvette in the Old Market is hosting a show — yes, that La Buvette. The lineup is Dunwoody & Son, David Ozinga, The Lazy Wranglers and Sean Pratt & The Sweats. The free show starts at 8 p.m.

And that’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend.
