Wow, another good weekend of music gone, another good one coming up. Last weekend at the Jinx, the Woggles at put on a great show, reminded me of old 60’s era Rolling Stones (I told y’all I was old, I am sure there are more recent comparisons). On Friday, Man Vs Astro-Man put on a very good show to a packed house at the Wormhole. And Sunday, American Hologram put on a show at Barrelhouse South, that was so good, it kept me out too late for a Sunday.
This weekend looks like it should be just as good, with plenty of good music every night. As a matter of fact, there is a little too much music for me this week. I am not sure where I will end up, so I have listed several recommended shows each night. If you head out, you should like any of these shows, depending on your mood and taste in music.

Ben Lewis & Friends – Molly MacPherson’s (10p)
