O'Leaversfest is this weekend...

O’Leaversfest is this weekend…

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

It’s another O’Leaver’s weekend…

The Club is celebrating the grand opening of its new beer garden (pictures of which you saw right here) with a three-day “festival” that kicks off tonight with music by Bonehart Flannigan, Brad Hoshaw, McCarthy Trenching and Rebecca Lowry. The usual $5, 9:30 p.m.

Then tomorrow the real festival kicks off with a beer and sausage party (Isn’t it always a sausage party at O’Leaver’s?) beginning at 11 a.m. in the beer garden. Methinks this will be O’Leaver’s take on the classic Oktoberfest, but with professional drinkers as participants. Expect things to get rather sloppy by 7:30 p.m. when the music begins inside The Club with M34N STR33T, Digital Leather, Lupines, Dumb Beach, Worried Mothers and Stephen Nichols. $7.

O’Leaversfest closes out Sunday with a Sunday Social featuring sausages and veggies from The French Bulldog at 2 p.m. and bands lighting up the stage at 5 p.m., including Members of the Press, Bloodcow and Baltimore band Darsombra (featuring Brian Daniloski from Meatjack). $5.

Yes, there are other things happening this weekend.

There’s a rock show tonight (Friday) at Slowdown Jr. headlined by Gordon with Powers and No Getter. $5, 9 p.m.

The Sydney is hosting a Country & Western show tonight with Western Automatic, The Willards and The Electroliners. $5, 9 p.m.

One Percent Productions has Kris Lager at The Waiting Room Saturday night with AZP ($8, 9 p.m.) and Universe Contest at Reverb with The Philistines & Tenderness Wilderness ($7, 9 p.m.).

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

BTW, that Desaparecidos show slated for O’Leaver’s Nov. 22 I told you about yesterday? It’s sold out. You snooze, you lose…
