Sunday SocialGlancing at the calendar, looks like it’s going to be “another O’Leaver’s weekend,” as well as another weekend without (a noteworthy) touring indie bands (A trend? Fear not, Yo La Tengo is next Saturday!).

Tonight at O’Leaver’s it’s the Brigadiers (starring Shane Lamson, Vic Padios, Clint Schnase and Mark Weber) along with The Ground Tyrants (The Weber Brothers, Bob Carrig and Wayne Brekke). Get back to your roots, people. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Tomorrow night (Saturday) again at fabulous O’Leaver’s, it’s the twang-rock stylings of Travelling Mercies with The Bottle Tops  (bluegrass family style) and Denell & I. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also Saturday night, reggae/funk act Wild Belle plays at The Waiting Room with Satchel Grande and Saint Rich. $10, 9 p.m.

Finally Sunday, again at O’Leaver’s, it’s the pub’s “Sunday Social” series this time featuring So-So Sailors and Austin band One Hundred Flowers (check out a track below). Food starts at 4 (not sure what they’re serving yet; while supplies last);  music starts at 5. $5. What else you gonna do on Sunday afternoon (besides watch football)?

Did I forget anything? Put it in the comments section.

Have a good weekend.
