Nite Owl CD Release - Saturday, May 10 @ Cicero's.
Happy Friday! Get out and enjoy another week of spring before summertime weather completely invades our climes. Head to Cicero's to grab Nite Owl's latest release, get sunburnt at Pointfest, witness some real-life juggalo action as ICP hosts wrestling at Pop's or do something completely different. Here are but a few concert options to choose from.

Friday (May 9):

JCW Wrestling hosted by ICP
w/ Big Hoodoo, Axe Murder Boyz, P.O.W.
@ Pop's Nightclub
7 p.m. | $16-$20
When I reported on the Gathering of the Juggalos last year, I got to watch a fight involving a giant foam pot leaf and bunch of magic mushrooms. In other words, this shit is as brain-dead hilarious as you might expect, and totally worth a trip to Pop's. Seriously -- no foolin'. (DH)

SoftSpot
w/ Jake Leech, Eric Hall
@ Foam
8 p.m. | $5
SoftSpot hails from Brooklyn and plays some self-described "old school new age art rock." To find out what that means, check it out on Bandcamp. Local ambience aficionados Eric Hall and Jake Leech open -- click their names to learn more about their work. (MS)

For a couple more recommendations for this evening, consider checking out Voight-Kampff at Apop Records and Dave Stone Trio at Mangia Italiano.

Saturday (May 10):

Ledisi
w/ DJ Black Guy
@ The Pageant
8 p.m. | $49
New Orleans' Ledisi is an R&B recording artist known for her jazz-influenced vocals. She has received no less than eight Grammy nominations since getting her start in 1995. Her latest album, The Truth, was released in March of this year. (DH)

Matt Pond PA
w/ The Lighthouse & the Whaler
@ Blueberry Hill
8 p.m. | $13.50/$16
Matt Pond has apparently taken a shine to St. Louis and comes though rather frequently these days. Check out the title track from his latest album, The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand, here. (DH)
