And so, the weekend.

The show getting the most press is tonight’s release party for Matt Whipkey’s new self-released album, Underwater, at The Waiting Room. Is there a media outlet that Matt hasn’t either been interviewed by or appeared on over the past couple weeks? I think not. Add to that all the people who took part in his Kickstarter campaign and there’s bound to be a big crowd at TWR. Kait Berreckman Band opens at 9 p.m., then Whipkey and his band take the stage, followed by John Klemmensen and the Party. $8.

Also tonight, Saturn Moth headlines at fabulous O’Leaver’s with Noah’s Ark Was a Spaceship and Timecat. This is the first Noah’s Ark show in quite a while. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Here’s some Noah’s Ark from 2008:

Saturday night it’s back to O’Leaver’s for one of my local faves, Dumb Beach. They’re opening for Fire Retarded, an act made up of members of Giant People, The New Years Gang and The Hussy. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also Saturday night See Through Dresses plays at Reverb Lounge with Eric in Outerspace. Drinking associated with Beer Week starts at 6 p.m. Bands start at 9:30 and the show is absolutely FREE.

Finally Sunday night Dana Point, California band The Growlers play at The Waiting Room. Their sound has been called “Beach Goth” and psychedelic surf rock. They’ve released stuff on Burger Records, though their latest album, Chinese Fountain, was released on Ever-loving Records. American Culture opens 9 p.m $13.

That’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend.
