In honor of it summer's approach and our swimsuit issue hitting the streets this week, I decided to throw a little something special up for this weekend's round-up. If your thirst for babes in bikinis isn't slaked by that cupcake over there on the left, check out the babe-alicious shots we got of Those Darlins, Jacob Jones, Kevin Thornton and more. Here's Friday night:
Happy Birthday Joey: A Tribute to The Ramones Benefiting Efforts to Find a Cure for Lymphoma feat. Warthog (members of Superdrag), Hotpipes, The Tits, members of The Privates and Eureka Gold and much, much more. Good times for a good cause featuring the same four chords over and over again.
Tigers Con Queso w/Dixie Whiskey & Mean Tambourines at The 5 Spot. The reign of Tigers Con Queso will soon come to an end, so go check it out before the boys (and girl) revamp their sound and start writing songs that are longer than two minutes. 'Cause that's what they're about to do.
Sarah Siskind CD Release feat. Joe Pisapia & Mack Starks at The Basement.
Small Axe w/Thunderbear at Exit/In. Maloney calls Small Axe "rocked-up afro-prog," and I think that's exactly what it is. Saw them open for Lone Official one time, and they definitely played some bonkers, funktastic jams about pimps and pimp-related matters. Pretty cool.
Softer Louder w/This Is Art & The Coolin' System at The End.
If you know of something better, go ahead and fill us in. I'm going to go work on my tan. Just kidding. Bloggers' skin is literally incapable of producing melanin. Back tomorrow.
