Weekend Round-Up: Patriot Style



Friends, Americans, countrymen — Happy Fourth. We at Cream HQ are taking the day off, so it might be a little quiet around here until Monday.

Nevertheless, we've got the round-up for you. It's a wee bit slow this weekend, but there's some good action here and there. Today you're looking at: The Other Basement's big last hurrah with Gunther Doug, Ttotals, Mom and Dad, Jawws and a ton of others; the big Riverfront bash with Ashley Monroe and others (which, truth be told, promises to be a traffic nightmare); a couple of shows at The 5 Spot; and more. Tomorrow you've got: The Paranormals' release show at The High Watt; Buzz Cason at CoMu's Poets and Prophets; Bad Sports with D. Watusi and others at Fond Object; Brandi Carlile's make-up show at the Schermerhorn; Chubby and the Dots doing an Elvis tribute at The Basement; and more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by music listings editor Adam "Stars and Stripes" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves an independence-packed weekend.
