Drink, drink, drink…

I generally don’t go to events whose sole entertainment value centers around the drinking of beer. Well, except for St. Patrick’s Day, and of course for two Octoberfest celebrations happening this weekend.

Tonight, mere footsteps from my front door, is the Benson Community Garden Octoberfest, located right at the garden spot at 1302 N. 60th St. The event promises “Fresh Food, Local Beer, Live Music & Great People” and yeah, bands will play. It’s 5 to 11 p.m. and costs $5. More info here.

The other Octoberfest is Saturday night at fabulous O’Leaver’s and includes a volleyball tournament and polka (details here). Of great(er) interest is the after party, featuring performances by Reptar, Twinsmith and See Through Dresses. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also Saturday night, The Waiting Room is hosting a fundraiser in honor of Alexis Stansbury. Performers include Snake Island!, John Klemmensen and the Party, Pyrate and The Filter Kings, who have said this will be their last show, maybe forever. Send Gerald Lee and Co. off in style and help a good cause at the same time. $10, 8 p.m.

They’ll still be picking the vomit out of the sand Sunday when Worried Mothers headlines a show at O’Leaver’s with Lvrk Late and  Minneapolis band The Funeral and the Twilight. $5, 9:30 p.m.

If I missed your show, put it in the comments area. Have a good weekend (glug-glug).
