Highlights of the One Percent Productions weekly concert report: First Aid Kit has been scheduled to play The Waiting Room June 2. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. Team Love Records’ second signed artist, Willy Mason, opens that show. (Anyone remember who Team Love’s first signed artist was?).

Also this Friday morning at 10 a.m. tickets go on sale for The Faint’s June 13 show at Sokol Auditorium. I suspect this will sell out, so get them while you can.

And 1% announced that Matt Pond PA is playing The Waiting Room May 14. I like Matt Pond.

Speaking of shows, tonight at The Waiting Room Skypiper headlines a show featuring a cavalcade of artists that includes Eli Mardock. $8, 9 p.m.

Also tonight Your Artist of the Year (according to the OEAAs) Matt Whipkey plays his weekly solo set at Tracks Lounge (formerly The Trackside) at 8. Matt Cox opens, and the show is free.

Meanwhile, Your Songwriter of the Year (according to the OEAAs) John Klemmensen also plays a solo acoustic set out at The Library Pub tonight with Bret Vovk (Under Water Dream Machine). 8 p.m. and free.
