Weekend Round-Up: Cosmonaut Style

Posted By on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 7:30 AM

As I'm sure you all realized when you awoke this morning and had a look at your Space Facts Day Calendar, today is the 52nd anniversary of Vostok 3KA-3's flight — the flight that made the USSR's Yuri Gagarin both the first human to travel into space and the first human to orbit the Earth. Space facts!

But here on Earth, and specifically in Nashville, we've got a pretty promising selection of local shows on our hands. Tonight you've got: the Norton Records benefit at Mercy Lounge with performances from The A-Bones, The Ettes, Har Mar Superstar and more; a pretty solid-looking house show at The Other Basement with Los Vigilantes, Cy Barkley and more; the first of Dwight Yoakam's two sold-out nights at the Ryman; jazz legend Wayne Shorter's sold-out show at the Schermerhorn; Blackfoot Gypsies and Low Cut Connie at The Stone Fox; and plenty more. Tomorrow you're looking at: Colleen Green at The Stone Fox; Roy Ira with Buffalo Clover and Banditos at The Basement; more sold-out Yoakam; Futurebirds' album release at Mercy; and more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by music listings editor Adam "Yuri" Gold — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a stellar weekend.
