Little Big Bangs Record Release - Friday, April 11 @ Schlafly Tap Room.
Happy weekend, everyone! In this edition of our weekend best bets, we talk about an experimental pop act from Switzerland, I Went To a's latest showcase, the Little Big Bangs vinyl release show and much more. If you didn't get tickets to see Billy Joel or Ben Folds, fret not -- there are plenty of other ways to stay entertained. Read on for our recommendations, and let everyone know what else is going on in the comments.

Friday (April 11):

DJ Captain Crunch
w/ T-Zank, Scalp Squad v Quasar Camp, Mathias & the Pirates, Seymour Awesome, Parlo Martin, Sir Racha
@ The Demo - $12-$20
And here I thought the only game this guy had was cereal-based. Nice moves, Cap'n. (DH)

w/ Disco Doom
@ Fubar
8 p.m. | $10
Ovlov comes all the way from Connecticut and plays some of the catchiest pop-structured alt-rock your ears will ever hear. Their tourmates, Disco Doom, make their way into town from even further away -- Zürich, Switzerland, to be exact. Click on the bands names to hear some tracks, and check them out in person (cuz who knows if/when they'll ever come back). (MS)
