Weekend Round-Up: Golden Franco Style

Posted By on Fri, Feb 25, 2011 at 8:48 AM

So, Oscar weekend is upon us, and that of course means we're all about to get bombarded with loads of Franco. Can you handle the Franco? You know, our own music listings editor, Adam Gold, was initially in the running to play the part of Aron Ralston in 127 Hours, but was beaten out last-minute by Franco. Why? Because nobody knows Franco like Franco knows Franco, and that sort of confidence, Franc-ly, makes for a sexual explosion onscreen.

Anyhow, the Oscars aren't your only chance for an exciting shindig this weekend. Some sweet local-rock action is going down. Tonight, you've got The Jompson Brothers with Shivering Timbers at The Basement, Afroman (LOL) with DJ Wick-It down in Murfreesboro, record releases from Trent Dabbs at 12th & Porter and Shotgun Lovers at The 5 Spot and loads more. Tomorrow, we've got Heypenny's record release show at Mercy Lounge, The Joe Bidewell Quartet — featuring loads of skilled locals — at Dino's, Mashville at The End, Government Cheese's reunion at The Rutledge, Ghostfinger with Heartbeater down in the ’Boro and more. Have a look after the jump to see the rest, compiled by listings king and Oscar hopeful A. Harrison Gold. Let us know what we missed, and, as per usual, have a good weekend.
