Weekend Round-Up: Hot August Night Style



Well, seeing as how it's hot, and it's August, I just can't think of what could be a more appropriate inspiration for this week's round-up than Neil Diamond's 1972 live double album. And hey, how about this: Nashville's best (only?) black Neil Diamond impersonator, Black Diamond, will be performing at Marathon on Saturday. The stars have aligned, my friends. The stars have aligned.

But even outside of the black Jewish Elvis, there's some great action going down this weekend. Tonight you've got: Amanda Shires at The High Watt; Chris Crofton and the Alcohol Stuntband's album release at The 5 Spot; the return of The Planet Rockers at The Basement; STS9 and Umphrey's McGee at The Lawn; Angel Olsen at The Stone Fox; and more. Tomorrow you're looking at: the aforementioned Black Diamond show at Marathon; Wanda Jackson at the TPAC gala; Tesla Rossa's 7-inch release at The High Watt featuring Richie and more; and plenty more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by intern Cory Woodroof and music listings editor Adam "Diamond" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a swaggering weekend.
