Weekend Round-Up: Americana Style Revisited

Posted By on Fri, Sep 14, 2012 at 7:30 AM

Since I used what I personally consider to be the most "Americana-lookin'" image ever for last year's Americana Style round-up, I figured I'd use the second-most "Americana-lookin'" image I could think of this time. It's genuinely disturbing, and for that I apologize.

If you're interested in all the Americana Music Fest haps, have a peek at contributor Abby White's recommendations for what to see. There's some good stuff there, from Robert Ellis to Richard Thompson, Buddy Miller and Lee Ann Womack and beyond. But if you're in the mood for something less rusty-dusty nebulous, there are some good non-Americana options on the table as well. Tonight you've got Built To Spill at Exit/In; Metric at the Ryman; Little Bandit's EP release at The 5 Spot; Makeup and Vanity Set with Sugar Sk*-*lls and more at Richland Ballroom; The Buddies with Phil Hummer and the White Falcons and The Maloneys at The Zombie Shop; Boyz II Men at the Schermerhorn; and loads more. Tomorrow you're looking at Beach House at Marathon; the East-Centric Music Festival at the East-Centric Pavilion; Boyz II Men again; Kelly Clarkson at Bridgestone; Americanarama at Grimey's; and more. Wow. Big weekend. Have a look at the rest —¬†compiled by music listings editor Adam "Rusty" Gold —¬†after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a wistful weekend.
