Weekend Round-Up: Lennon Style



As everyone knows, yesterday was the anniversary of The Walrus' senseless murder at the hands of Mark David Chapman (Or was Paul The Walrus?). As a matter of fact, there's even a Lennon tribute to benefit the Brady Center tonight at Mercy Lounge. Anyway. Puts me in the mood to watch the entire Beatles Anthology. Again.

But the Lennon tribute isn't the only thing going on this weekend, of course. Tonight you've got White Rabbits at Exit/In, Canon Blue and Brooke Waggoner at The Basement, DJ Craze at Mai, a Tom Waits tribute at The 5 Spot and more. Tomorrow you're looking at Matt Moody's record release/Mandy Peitz-Moody's art show at Art & Soul, Carolina Chocolate Drops at Mercy Lounge, Little Viking with King Arthur and Calicocat at The End and plenty more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by music listings editor Adam "The Smart One" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a an imaginative weekend.
