by Tim McMahan,

Here’s the rundown for the weekend, none of which is brought to you by The Knitting Factory…

Tonight at fabulous O’Leaver’s Silversphere headlines. Never heard of them? Neither have I, though the listing indicates that Silversphere includes members of legendary local duo The Lepers. Also on the bill are Ruby Block and DWNR. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also tonight, Milk Run has Chicago power-pop dude Sam Vicari, whose most recent LP came out on Sip City Records. Opening are The Fat Timmys (hey now) and Briner. $7, 8 p.m.

That wraps it up for Friday night.

Saturday night 2015 break-out band High Up headlines at The Slowdown. This is the blue-eyed soul band you’ve been dreaming about. Also on the bill is KC band Yes You Are, the project headlined by Kianna Alarid, who you might remember from a little ol’ band called Tilly and the Wall. Kianna talks about those Tilly days and her new band in this lengthy Kansas City Star article. Carl Miller & The Thrillers kick things off at 9 p.m. $5

Meanwhile, back at O’Leaver’s Saturday night Lincoln rockers Red Cities headlines a bill that includes the always-mesmerizing Domestica. Bullet Proof Hearts open at 9:30. $5.

If that weren’t enough, everyone’s favorite garage band Sucettes (featuring Dave Goldberg and Jeremiah McIntyre, among others) headlines at The Brothers Lounge Saturday night. Warming up the corner for them is Lineman’s Rodeo and David Nance Band. No price shown for this one, but I suspect it’ll be around $5. Starts at 9:30.

Finally, back at Milk Run, Omaha emo heroes Super Ghost headlines another emo bill that includes a bunch of emo bands that are new to me: Mighty Ships, Secret Stuff and The Foxery. It’s another show where the promoter forgot to list the price, so I’m guessing around $5. Starts at 9 p.m.

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