Three Hot Weekend Tips

1. The Hair Ball at The Ottobar 9 p.m. Saturday

Two former Kix (pictured) members, Steve Whitman (now with Funny Money) and Jimmy Chalfant lead this rock dance party. It's going to be smoking.

2. All Mighty Senators, Jah Works and the Kelly Bell Band at Recher Theatre Saturday

The shared 30th Anniversary for the City Paper and Record and Tape Traders should be one huge party. 

3. Dan Deacon and Video Hippos battle at Lo-Fi Social Club tonight

Not sure exactly what is going to be happening at this joint show, but I'm sure it will be awesome. Deacon is selling out shows in Europe now.

Did you know that Record & Tape Traders has been sold? They shut down their warehouse on Friday (after informing their employees on Tuesday of the closure, as well as the fact that they weren't receiving any sort of severance package) and 3 stores will be closing in the VERY near future.

I'm boycotting this show.
