I cannot tell a lie: I hate Korn!
  • "I cannot tell a lie: I hate Korn!"
President's Day! The day when we pay homage to all the old white dudes who came before us. I'll still be coming into work on Monday, however. How's that for change we can believe in? No matter.

To the matter at hand: This weekend boasts a host of jams, with the 16-year-old in me (don't ask how he got in there) rejoicing at Jimmy Eat World's appearance at Cannery tonight. Also tonight, you're looking at Doug Stanhope with The Mattoid at Exit/In, Mashville at Mercy, and some dude from Michigan hollering over Lynyrd Skynyrd samples at Bridgestone Arena. Tomorrow night, we've got The Long Players covering Pink Floyd at Mercy, Cheap Time with D. Watusi at Glenn Danzig's, Shazam! doing Live at Leeds at The 5 Spot and much, much more. Have a look at the rest, compiled by music listings editor and America's Founding Father, Adam Gold, after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a solid weekend.
