As mentioned by my fellow Creamster Adam Gold, thousands of margarita-sipping, flip-flop-wearing island escapists will descend upon Bridgestone Arena tomorrow night to see Jimmy Buffett — whose last Music City appearance just happened to coincide with 2010's Nashville Flood. Coincidence? Well yes, obviously. But still, I don't feel great about it.

Lost shakers of salt aside, we've got some decent action this weekend. Tonight you've got: The Weeks' album release show at Mercy Lounge; The Sword at Exit/In; Magnolia Sons' single release at The 5 Spot; a DJ battle at Avenue 9; and more. Tomorrow you're looking at: Band of Horses' first of two nights at the Ryman; The Protomen's 10th anniversary at Mercy Lounge; Richie with Cannomen and Fragments of God at The Stone Fox; Mage tha Blackheart and friends at The End; and more. Have a look after the jump to see the rest — compiled by music listings editor Adam "Cheeseburger in Paradise" Gold. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a tropical weekend.
