The show of the weekend is, of course, Beach House tonight at The Slowdown, and it’s SOLD OUT. Get there early for opener Jessica Pratt, whose most recent album, On Your Own Love Again (Drag City, 2015), got a rousing 8.1 in Pitchfork. 9 p.m.

Meanwhile back uptown, Pro-Magnum headlines tonight at fabulous O’Leaver’s. Also on the bill are Mike Schlesinger, Sean Pratt and the Sweats. $5, 9:30 p.m.  Check out Schlensinger’s cover of “Look at Miss Ohio” by Gillian Welch recorded live at O’Leaver’s as a preview of what you’ll hear tonight:

Don’t forget about the event I told you about yesterday, Art Bazaar is happening in Benson capped off with a show at The Sydney headlined by Gordon with A Ferocious Jungle Cat. Bands start at 11. $5.

There ain’t a whole helluva lot going on Saturday night. Carson City Heat is playing at O’Leaver’s with Rothsteen and Tara Vaughn. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Actually, what could really end up being the show of the weekend is Sunday afternoon when O’Leaver’s hosts one of its Summer Socials. Food (sausages and sides) starts at 2 p.m. The music starts at 5:30 with Omaha ex-pat now LA scenester Jake Bellows, his pals Whispertown and the inimitable  McCarthy Trenching. $7.

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