Weekend. Go!

Tonight at The Barley Street Tavern it’s The Killigans with Death of a Taxpayer, Whipkey/Zimmerman and Andrew Bailie. $5, 9 p.m.

And that’s about it for Friday night.

You actually have some choices on Saturday night.

Over at O’Leaver’s Saturday it’s Eli Mardock with Chicago bop-folk artists The Bears of Blue River, The Betties and Dastardly. If you haven’t seen Mardock in a while, he’s now sporting a full backing band, which I’ve been told is rather impressive. I suspect we’ll be hearing songs off his forthcoming solo album, Everything Happens for the First Time, a preview of which you can hear at his Facebook page. $5, 9 p.m.

Also Saturday night, Hear Nebraska is celebrating its one-year anniversary with a show featuring UUVVWWZ, Howard, and the Wayward Little Satan Daughters. The location: DP Muller Photography, 6066 Maple St in the heart of Benson. 9 p.m., no idea if there’s  a cover.

And th-th-th-that’s all, folks…
