Happy to hear that our Chilean miner bros have been freed from their subterranean homesick blues! Sucks about that one miner getting busted cheatin' and all ... but that's his bad. Anyway, this week's round-up theme idea was brought to you by Cap'n Steve Haruch. Music listings editor Adam Gold was not actually trapped in the mine, though he is a fan of the song "Sweet Child o' Mine."
So this certainly isn't the most exciting weekend we've come across in a while, but if you dig a little, there's some good stuff. Paul Burch, Swingin' Utters, Mashville, Sarah Harmer and Clare Burson, David Vandervelde w/Chris Crofton, The Twenty Eights (Nashville's premier Chuck Berry tribute band), Zion I and more. Oh, and Matt & Kim will be playing on Sunday ... if you're into that sort of thing. Have a look after the jump at our listings, corralled by our brave, now-unearthed music listings editor. Please, let us know of anything we missed, and have yourselves a safe and enjoyable weekend.
