Weekend Round-Up: End of the World (Again) Style



Remember when lovable scamp kooky buffoon unskilled con artist Harold Camping claimed the world would end five months back? Well, he was obviously incorrect and thus cried mulligan, citing May 21 (however half-assed and noncommittal) as his redo date. Good luck with that, Harold!

But on the planet Earth — the one that will continue to exist come Monday — we have a modest little selection of local rock options. Tonight you're looking at The Swan King at The End, The Sex Bombs at The 5 Spot, Yacht Rock Revue at Mercy Lounge and ... well, not a lot more than that, actually. Tomorrow, on the other hand, you've got The Big Nashty Festival featuring Natural Child, Hans Condor, Natalie Prass, D. Watusi, Evan P. Donohue and loads more out in Gallatin, Deer Tick at Mercy Lounge, Boom Bap at The 5 Spot and more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by Adam Gold, who is currently stocking his fallout shelter with canned goods — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a pleasant last weekend ever.
