We’ve got a top-heavy weekend musicwise, with a lot going on tonight. Let’s get to it:

At Slowdown Jr. two Atlanta-based garage bands — Biters and The Booze — along with locals Snake Island open a show tonight for Rock Paper Dynamite. According to the Facebook write-up, Biters have “all the coolest elements of Cheap Trick, Thin Lizzy, AC-DC, Bowie and even the Beatles. Huge background vocals bring to mind Sweet, Slade and Queen.” Nice. $8, 9 p.m.

Meanwhile, The Lepers return to everyone’s favorite stink-hole, O’Leaver’s, for a show tonight with Brooklyn rockers Ladycop. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Our old friends Landing on the Moon are playing the boats tonight, specifically Harrah’s Stir Lounge, with Lonely Estates. $5, 9 p.m.

And if you’re in Lincoln tonight, Cursive is playing at Knickerbocker’s with Pharmacy Spirits and So-So Sailors. $12, 9 p.m.

Pickin’s are a bit slimmer Saturday night. The only thing on my radar is Zep tribute band The Song Remains the Same at The Waiting Room with Learning to Floyd, which I assume is a Pink Floyd tribute. $7, 9 p.m.

Finally, Sunday night The Show Is the Rainbow opens for Philly electronic duo RYAT at The Waiting Room. $7, 9 p.m.
