The Weekend is Here

Yeah, The Cure are in the area, but there is a hell of a lot going on elsewhere too. Several other huge acts are gracing us with their presence. Saturday in Atlantic City at the House of Blues is chanteuse Regina Spektor. Or if you like Kanye West and N.E.R.D., warm the Nissan Pavilion stage up Saturday before the big show Sunday. And of course, Radiohead is in Northern Virginia Sunday at Nissan. Opening is Liars.

Liars - Army of Me (Bjork Cover, thanks to Stereogum)

Is country infused Southern-rock your thing? Then check out two shows (Friday and Saturday) at the 9:30 Club in DC by the Drive-By Truckers. They are joined by another southern band, The Dexateens.

Drive-By Truckers - World of Hurt
The Dexateens - Slender Thread

Friday night in Philly at The Fire, see Come On Caboose, a four-piece from Ohio that will be out spreading their music all summer long. Down in Baltimore, Pete Francis and Matt Pond PA share the stage at Ottobar. In the District, catch The Parlor Mob at the Rock and Roll Hotel fresh off a Philly show Thurday and a new album!

Come On Caboose - Organs
Matt Pond PA - Taught to Look Away

Saturday, it's a Philly local show at Johnny Brendas featuring a CD release by Aunt Dracula and one of the best local bands to see live, Papertrigger. Baltimore band Thrushes is throwing its own CD release the same night at Metro Gallery. Also playing is Deaf Leaf Echo, and Sonadors.
