by Tim McMahan,

Your weekend starts off tonight with three awesome shows.

Columbus Ohio’s Saintseneca headlines tonight at Slowdown Jr. The band has a classic indie rock sound that’s been compared to Neutral Milk Hotel. They recorded their latest record, Dark Arc (ANTI-) with Mike Mogis at ARC. Openers are Pennsylvania’s Vikesh Kapoor (Mama Bird Recordings) and our very own Dim Light. $8, 9 p.m.

Check out some Saintseneca below:

Meanwhile, at fabulous O’Leaver’s, it’s the return of Gordon. Opening is The New Trust (members of the Velvet Teen) and Those Far out Arrows. $5, 9:30pm.

Finally, over at the legendary Brothers Lounge, Hear Nebraska is hosting a show with one of Andy Norman’s favorite bands, Red City Radio. The Oklahoma City band is on the road supporting their brand-new full length, Titles (Paper + Plastick Records). The Ridgeways open. $5, 9 p.m.

Also tonight, All Young Girls Are Machine Guns plays at The Waiting Room with Field Club and the Benson Soul Society. $7, 9 p.m.

In this week’s column, I ask why any sane parent would let their kids play football considering its crippling effects. You can read it in this week’s issue of The Reader or online right here.

  • Thanks for pointing out that RCR’s one of my favorite bands, Tim. You’re on the spot! You should come out for a Rolling Rock.
