Weekend Round-Up: Farewell Romneys Style


1 comment

Why, you guys certainly aren't tired of election coverage, post-election coverage, pollsters, talking heads and pundits, are you? Rather than filling your browser with more unwanted political commentary — or rubbing salt in the wounds of defeated Repubs — I'll just say farewell to Mitt & Co., and we'll leave it at that.

So, let's stick to our domain. Local shows. This weekend's looking all right, if not stellar. Tonight you've got: The Losers Lounge Bowie tribute at 3rd & Lindsley featuring Brendan Benson, Futureman, Sam Bush and more; Shalom Foundation's benefit at Mercy featuring GRiZ; Faux Ferocious with Hi Electric at Springwater; Quiet Entertainer at The 5 Spot; Take the Power Back with Tipper Whore and more at Exit/In; and plenty more. Tomorrow you're looking at: Peelander-Z at Mercy; Ponychase's in-store early at Grimey's; My So-Called Band doing Weezer's good stuff at The Stone Fox; Evan P. Donohue at The End; DeRobert and the Half-Truths at The 5 Spot; and more. There's even some action on Sunday, what with Regina Spektor at the Ryman and so forth. Have a look at the rest — compiled by music listings editor Adam "Tagg" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a winner of a weekend.
