Weekend Round-Up: Elvis Gold Records Style



Tuesday of course would have been The King's 78th birthday, had he not met his commodal demise 30-some-odd years ago. Of course, we've hat-tipped to Elvis round-up-wise in recent months, but honestly, who's keeping score? Rest in peace, King.

So anyway, this weekend's looking mighty promising, thanks especially to Mercy Lounge's huge anniversary blowout at the center of it all. Tonight you've got: JEFF, Turbo Fruits, Richie, Tristen, Wild Cub, Magnolia Sons, Evan P. Donohue and much more at Mercy, Cannery and The High Watt; David Allan Coe with Jonny Fritz at Exit/In; Brother Ares, Hellbender and more over at Betty's; Honey Locust with Poly and Promised Land at The Stone Fox; and much more. Tomorrow you're looking at: Cherub, Natural Child, Machines Are People Too, The Weeks and more at Mercy, Cannery and the Watt; Steelism with Poly and Chris Scruggs at The Basement; Dirty Dozen Brass Band at Exit/In; D. Watusi early at Grimey's (5 p.m.) and plenty more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by Adam "Love Me Tender" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a golden weekend.
