I hope all of you folks have a wonderful holiday weekend. I, for one, will be filling mine with yard work and barbecues. Hopefully the weather stays nice.
I'm also hoping to get to a few shows this weekend. Here are the highlights of the days ahead:
• Karaoke can be some drunk fun, but it's way cooler when you get to perform in front of a live band. Girl Drink Drunk provides that opportunity. They play Sunday at O'Leaver's. Check out the band's MySpace for a list of available songs.
• A bunch of area punk bands are opening up for hardcore punk group Millions of Dead Cops on Sunday at the Hole. Cordial Spew, Officially Terminated, Wooden Coat, Eastern Turkish, Youth & Tear Gas open the all-ages show.
• Highlight of the weekend for me would be Good Old War, an alt-folk outfit that a friend turned me onto recently. The band plays with Yukon Blonde and Audra Mae on Sunday. $10 tickets.
