Ten Things To Do This Weekend: November 5-7
Lots to do (again) this weekend. See the music page for some ideas -- and below for many more!
Bootleg Beats - Guy Fawkes Edition @ The Speakeasy (1009 Olive)
This newish monthly unleashes a special Guy Fawkes edition tonight at the Speakeasy. Varying shades of electro from Den-E (trip-hop), Fastcode (drum 'n' bass) and LiquidGrin (breaks) keep bodies moving until the 1:30 close. Facebook event. 21-plus. $5 with the password, $7 without.
Devon Allman's Honeytribe @ Euclid Records
On Saturday night at the Duck Room, Devon Allman's Honeytribe will be celebrating the release of its new LP, Space Age Blues. (Read our review.) Before that, however -- that's today -- the soulful guitar rockers will be taping a Euclid Sessions performance at Euclid Records. Free. 6:30 p.m.
Big George Brock @ Old Rock House
The venue's "Listening Room" series continues with a set from the local blues legend, Big George Brock. 8:30 p.m. $5. 21-plus. The first 80 people who RSVP here get in free, however!
Doug Stanhope @ The Firebird
Read our interview with the ribald comic over at Daily RFT. Then go see him at the Firebird. Your hangover won't thank us on Sunday. 9 p.m. $20.
JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound + The Sights at Euclid Records
Both bands are performing on Saturday night at Off Broadway as part of the Beat 'n' Soul festival. That afternoon, however, both are taping Euclid Sessions; the Sights will be playing acoustically. Free. All-ages. JC Brooks: 3 p.m. The Sights 4 p.m.
Ladytron DJ set @ Sol Lounge
Reuben Wu & Mira Aroyo of synthpop darlings Ladytron will be showing off their DJ skills at Sol Lounge. A performance by Lexington, Kentucky's The Chaotic Good, and DJ sets by Fractured and King Vague are also on the bill. Tickets here. Facebook event. 9 p.m. $15
Fantasy Four tribute sets/Bunnygrunt/Googolplexia @ Mangia
Considered lost forever, the full-length album by long-defunct band the Fantasy Four -- the duo of Karen Ried and Scott Hermes -- is earning the reissue treatment courtesy of Pancake Production. This show features Bunnygrunt (Ried's current band), Googolplexia and other surprise guests playing their own music and playing Fantasy Four tribute sets. Incidentally, the album, Getting Fantastic With...THE FANTASY FOUR, has fifteen tracks and will be available at the show (and beyond). 10 p.m. Free
Kina Grannis @ Old Rock House
Grannis was last in town as part of Lilith Fair back in July. Catching the smoky singer-songwriter in the cozy confines of the Old Rock House will allow her insightful lyrics to shine. Imaginary Friend is also on the bill. All-ages. 8 p.m. $12 in advance, $14 day of show. $2 minor surcharge.
Genitorturers @ Fubar
The industrial/metal/punk/electro demolition derby Genitorturers has been a band for two decades now, but is still going stong; the group released a new record, Blackheart Revolution, last year. Mary Magdalen, Soy City Strangers, Sons of Black Mass and Sinfinis are also on the bill.
Doors at 7 p.m. $18 in advance, $20 day of show. Minor surcharge if under 21.
The Dive Poets @ Halo Bar
Barenaked Ladies is sold out, but there's still music to be had: After the band's set, head to the Halo Bar for a show from local roots/modern rockers the Dive Poets. Free. 21-plus.
