It’s Friday already. Here’s the weekend lineup:

Local legend Dereck Higgins (InDreama, ex-Digital Sex) is giving a free performance early tonight as the Carver Bank artist in residence. From what I’ve read, it’ll be like a “Storytellers” performance with Dereck playing songs from his five solo albums interspersed with stories about his life and his career. The show starts at 7, but get there early and buy some grub from Big Mama’s Sandwich Shop. Carver Bank is located at 2416 Lake Street.

Also tonight at The Waiting Room, Minneapolis band Now Now (the band formerly known as Now Now Every Children) headlines a show with The Lonely Forest (both bands are on the Trans label) and our very own Millions of Boys. $12, 9 p.m.

What’s that? You can’t get enough of Millions of Boys? Well good because the band is playing again Saturday night, this time at fabulous O’Leaver’s opening for See Through Dresses (another Sara Bertuldo project, which also features Matt Carroll, Nate Van Fleet and Robert Little), Dan Mariska and the Church Boys Choir and The Rest of Ray Brower. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, down at Slowdown Jr., Omaha’s favorite troubadour Brad Hoshaw opens for Minneapolis folkies The Pines (Red House Records).  $8/$10DOS, 9 p.m.
