Weekend Round-Up: Paul David Hewson Style



U2 superfans — like, for instance, music listings editor Adam Gold — may know that today marks the 53rd birthday of one Mr. Paul David Hewson (aka Bono). So then. Happy birthday to that diminutive Irish son of a bitch, I guess.

Anyway. Dublin's post-punk rock gods won't be returning to Nashville this weekend, but that doesn't mean there aren't some great shows. Tonight you're looking at: Father John Misty at Marathon; Courtney Jaye's album release show with JP5 at Exit/In; T. Rust with Switchblade Kid and Blank Range at The End; the first night of East Nashville Underground with Evan P. Donohue, The Weeks and more; Anthony Hamilton at War Memorial; FIX 18 at 12th & P; and plenty more. Tomorrow you've got: Musicians' Corner at Centennial Park; Hotpipes' album release show at Mercy Lounge; Matthew Shipp with Lambchop at VFW Post 1970; the second installment of East Nashville Underground (day and night shows) with Little Bandit, Derek Hoke, Chancellor Warhol, The Kingston Springs and more; and plenty more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by Adam "Mysterious Ways" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves the sweetest weekend.
