Weekend Round-Up: Baseball Style

Posted By on Fri, Sep 27, 2013 at 7:20 AM

Well, how 'bout that baseball, eh? Sunday marks the end of regular-season MLB play, and Commissioner Bud Selig just announced his retirement. I've kind of abstained from watching professional baseball during the Selig era (1992-2014), so maybe that'll change in 2015. Oh hey, you ever read the story about Billy Ripken's "Fuck Face" card? Hilarious.

Well, if you don't intend to spend your weekend watching sport (yes, I said "sport"), then you might notice that there are several really, really good shows going down. Tonight you've got: the first day of Zac Brown Band's Southern Ground Fest at The Lawn; Sigur Ros at The Woods; Jacuzzi Boys with PUJOL and D. Watusi at The End; Yelawolf at Marathon; Guitar Wolf with Coathangers and Cy at Exit; Spanish Gold (featuring members of My Morning Jacket, Hacienda and Grupo Fantasma) at The Basement; Jasmin Kaset at The High Watt; Low Cut Connie at The Stone Fox; and more. Tomorrow you're looking at: more Southern Ground Fest; Promised Land Sound's album release at Fond Object (early); Shy Guy with Bad Cop and Penicillin Baby at The Groove (also early); Lionel Richie at Bridgestone; Archnemesis at Exit/In; Gov't Mule at the Ryman and more. Have a look at the rest — compiled by music listings editor Adam "Ripken" Gold and intern Cory "Ripken Jr." Woodroof — after the jump. Let us know what we missed, and have yourselves a ballin' weekend.
