As a person who works — and lives, practically — on Internet, I'd be remiss not to mention what an important day it is in computer history. Twenty years ago today, IBM debuted its revolutionary personal computer. I mean, there were personal desktop computers on the market before the PC, and, I mean, I use Mac at work and at home ... but, you know. A theme's a theme, so deal with it.

But IRL, there are live musical performances happening. A whole mess of 'em, in fact. Tonight, there's a short film premiering at 3549 Crestridge Dr., and O, Don Piano and some other bands are playing that. There's also Milktooth, Field Days and Cortney Tidwell at The End, the Unify Block Party at 12th & Porter and Mai, the unveiling of cover band The Aught-Nots at Mercy Lounge, Crazy Aces at Family Wash and more. Tomorrow, Denney and the Jets are playing at a barn! Not to mention Ezra Furman and the Harpoons with Tristen at The 5 Spot, Toad the Wet Sprocket (what?!) at Mercy Lounge and loads more. Have a look at the rest, compiled by music listings editor Adam Gold — who is currently stuck inside of a computer! HE'S INSIDE A COMPUTER! — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a good weekend.
