Weekend Round-Up: Django Dstyle



Well, as per usual, I've only seen somewhere in the neighborhood of half of the Best Picture nominees. That said, don't you think it's high time Quentin Tarantino took home a statue for Best Director or Best Picture? Sure, he won Best Original Screenplay for Pulp Fiction, but you know what took the honors for Director and Picture that year? Goddamn Forrest Gump. Come on.

But before we make it to the awards ceremony on Sunday, we've got a decent smattering of local shows to keep us entertained. Tonight you're looking at: The Bluefields at The Highwatt; The EvinRudes at 12th & P; the KDSML Review at Exit; Allen Thompson Band with Poly and Lonely H at The Basement; and more. Tomorrow you've got: Menomena at Mercy; Count Bass D at The Stone Fox; AJ and the Jiggawatts with DeRobert and the Half-Truths at The High Watt; Patrick Sweany and a bunch more at The Basement; and more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by music listings editor Adam "Dgold" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves an award-winning weekend.
