You guys remember that movie The Ice Storm? I don't exactly, but I vaguely recall something about Christina Ricci flashing her biz (nice), Kevin Kline going to a key party and Elijah Wood getting electrocuted by a guardrail. I know that's right.
Anyhow, seeing as how I composed this entry in the past, I really have no idea whether or not it's icy out as you're reading it, but I'll bet the grocery stores are all out of bread and batteries either way. Some damn fine shows this weekend. Seriously. Wax Fang, Nick Oliveri, Tom Green, yacht rock. That's just the tip of the ice burg. See Friday AND Saturday's best biz after the jump.
* Nick Oliveri w/Millionaire Magicians at The End.
* Space Capone w/Yacht Rock Revue at Mercy Lounge. Mercy Lounge Drew loves that yacht rock. I mean, seriously. Maybe it's time for an intervention. UPDATE: Yacht Rock is rescheduled for Mar. 19. Space Capone will still be playing, with "special guests."
* Boom Ticket w/Samantha Gibb and the Cartel, Porkchop Express & C.B. Tucker Band at The 5 Spot.
* Eastern Block w/My Tyger
and Kat Brock at The Basement.
* Branford Marsalis will be at Schermerhorn. That's pretty sweet, right?
* World Bazaar w/Xpia, The Wrong Kids & Vessel at Springwater.
* Tom Green will be at Zanies through Jan. 31 if you think you can hang with that. Daddy, would you like some sausage?
Here are the rest.
The Non-Commissioned Officers w/Wax Fang & How I Became the Bomb at Exit/In. UPDATE: Postponed.
