Time for the weekend…

….starting tonight at Slowdown Jr. where Noah’s Ark Was a Spaceship headlines a show with Universe Contest, The Ghost Runners and Gordon.

It’s safe to say Universe Contest is the hottest band out of Lincoln since Eagle Seagull, and will likely be the reason for tonight’s crowd. Lincoln band The Ghost Runners is comprised of Nate Christiancy, Javid Dabestani (Lupines), Aaron Druery (Criteria, Beep Beep) and Kyle Gibson. Openers Gordon I’ve told you about before. I still haven’t seen them live and won’t tonight as I can’t get down to Slowdown until after 10, well past their set time. That shouldn’t stop you, though. $8, 9 p.m.

And then tomorrow night Dirty Fluorescents headlines at the new, improved O’Leaver’s with John Klemmensen and the Party and The Hussies, who apparently are these guys:

$5, 9:30 p.m. Go!

Also Saturday night, Logan Iowa combo Fork in the Road plays at The Barley Street Tavern with Matt Whipkey and Scott Severin. $5, 9 p.m.

Am I missing anything? Post it in the comments section…
