Weekend Round-Up: Dreidel Style



Shalom, friends! Hanukkah begins this Sunday — or anyway, at sundown tomorrow. I have to admit, I've always been super-jealous of kids who grew up in Jewish households: rich culture and fantastic cuisine, minus all that fire-and-brimstone nonsense that has indeed left me with some apparently permanent psychological scars? Yes please. Anyway, happy holidays to all my Jewish brothers and sisters. Mazel tov! Did I use that right? I don't think I used that right. Damn it, I'm such a WASP.

So anyhow, there are some mighty appealing shows going on this weekend. Tonight you're looking at: the one-and-only Miss Wanda Jackson with Jonny Fritz and Courtney Jaye at 3rd & Lindsley; Richard Buckner and Chelsea Crowell at The Stone Fox; the Second Harvest Tom Waits tribute over at The 5 Spot; Stuck Lucky's album release up at FooBar; Hustle! Take 2 at Cannery; and plenty more. Tomorrow you've got: Mr. Gnome at Exit/In; Trey Songz at Municipal; Low Cut Connie at The Stone Fox; Sturgill Simpson at The Basement; Wild Feathers with Luella and the Sun and some others at Mercy; and plenty more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by music listings editor Adam "Oy!" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a lichticheh weekend (Am I doing it right??).
