Weekend Round-Up: Cruisin' Style



Well, staff writer/music listings editor Adam Gold and I are currently on board the SS Imagination, Bruise Cruisin' along at, um, a whole bunch of knots per hour, and that means a handful of things. It means that I wrote this post a couple of days ago and am thus blogging from beyond the grave, it means that we're seeing a different slew of shows than the slew you'll be seeing this weekend, and it means that if you make fun of us in the comments section, we probably won't be able to defend ourselves for a little bit. Unless we want to pay $0.75 per minute for some Internet access.

But I'm not trying to rub anything in. After all, you guys have a pretty impressive selection of shows to pick from yourselves. Tonight, for instance, you're looking at Drive-By Truckers with Nikki Lane at Cannery, Yonder Mountain String Band at Marathon, Courtney Jaye and some others at The Basement and more. Tomorrow night you've got Cherub's album release at Mercy Lounge, DBT again at Cannery and plenty more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by "Captain" Adam Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a safe one.
