Weekend Round-Up: Andre the Giant Style



Not to bum everyone out, but the legendary wrestler and actor Andre "The Giant" Roussimoff actually died of congestive heart failure 19 years ago today. Today also happens to be the birthday of both Mike Patton and Patton Oswalt — I toyed with something like a "Mike Patton Oswalt" style. But paying homage to Andre felt more imperative. Rest in peace, Andre.

Anyway, the rock 'n' roll appears to be in full swing this weekend, with shows — primarily shows of a local-centric nature —¬†popping off all over town. Tonight you've got Hate Life with Puffy Areolas, Cheap Time and The Black Faces at Dino's, Jason Isbell out in Franklin, great hip-hop showcases at both The Attic and 12th & Porter, The Long Players doing Fleetwood Mac at Mercy and loads more. Tomorrow we're looking at Kathleen Edwards at Exit/In, that killer show with Ranch Ghost, The Paperhead and more at The Zombie Shop, The Boom Bap's fourth anniversary at The 5 Spot and loads more. See the rest — compiled by Adam "The Average-Height Guy" Gold— after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a strong one.
