And now it’s time for the weekend round-up…

Icky Blossoms and UUVVWWZ are headed to Austin for South By Southwest next week and need some cash to pay off the cops when they get busted doing nude shit on 6th St. It’s the same old story. Anyway, both bands are playing tonight at The Slowdown, along with two other bands that should be going to SXSW but aren’t: Lincoln’s Life is Cool and Omaha up-and-comers Pleasure Adapter. $7, 9 p.m. in the big room.

Meanwhile, across town at fabulous O’Leaver’s, Digital Leather (with newest member Todd Fink of The Faint) takes the stage tonight along with Lincoln leather-hood degenerate Plack Blague and DJ Butterhips, whose mantra is WWBRD — What Would Burt Reynolds Do? $5, 9:30 p.m. Don’t forget to get yourself a Monkey La La in the new tiki room.

Also tonight, Satchel Grande — who also is headed to SXSW — is playing at The Waiting Room. $7, 9 p.m., and Millions of Boys plays at The Barley Street Tavern with St. Louis band Dsoedean and headliner Calling Cody. $5, 9 p.m.

And then comes Saturday night and the stage debut of Pro-Magnum at O’Leavers. The band consists of Paul Hansen (Perry H. Mathews, The Fucking Party) on guitar, Pat Oakes (Ladyfinger) on drums and Johnny Vredenburg on bass and vocals. Also on the bill are Flesh Eating Disease and Minneapolis band Buildings. $5, 9:30 p .m. Get there early.

Also Saturday night, Blue Bird plays The Barley Street with Lonely Estates and Dead Leaves. $5, 9 p.m.

Sunday night Kevin Seconds, founder of influential ’80s hardcore band 7 Seconds, will be presenting a special solo acoustic performance at The Sydney with Filter Kings’ frontman Gerald Lee, Jr. No posted price but these shows usually run about $5 and start at 9 p.m.

Also Sunday night, Doomtree artist Dessa returns to The Waiting Room with Aby Wolf & Purveyors of the Conscious Sound. $10, 9 p.m.
