Weekend Round-Up: Bieber Style



Oh hey, it's golden boy Justin Bieber's 19th birthday. As good an excuse as any to look back at our slideshow from his appearance at Bridgestone Arena six weeks ago, no? Remember that one picture where he looks like Brigitte Nielsen? Ha.

But here on earth — and not floating over our heads like so much androgynous Adonis — we have a lot of really good options as far as entertainment is concerned. Tonight you're looking at: Photo Ops' album release at The 5 Spot; Escondido's album release at The High Watt; JP5 with Jem Cohen, Sparkle City DJs and some new action at FooBar; Hanzelle with T-Rust and more at Boheme Collectif; Buddy Guy and Johnny Lang at War Memorial; Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale at Mercy; Cannomen, Deluxin' and more at Springwater; and so much more. Tomorrow you've got: Richie with Angel Olsen and William Tyler at Club Roar; Forget Cassettes with Bows and Arrows, Coupler and Cortney Tidwell at Exit/In; the SXSW sendoff at Mercy with The Protomen, Alanna Royale, Magnolia Sons, The Howlin' Brothers and a bunch more; P!nk and The Hives at Bridgestone; and so much more. Wow. That's a lot of promising action. Have a look at the rest — compiled by music listings editor Adam "Belieber" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a high-flyin' weekend.
