Feb. 7 - 13 in nightlife: recovering from the Superbowl, Lauryn Hill, a new seasonal from DuClaw
Still recovering from the Superbowl? Man up, there's stuff to do this week, a good one for local music, with a couple of bands - Weekends and Arbouretum - releasing new albums. But the performance to watch is Lauryn Hill. If she arrives three hours late, will Baltimore fans react with cute signs, or worse?
On Tuesday, guitarist Dustin Wong performs at Golden West, along with Woods and Ducktails. Hopefully, his water won't break. 1105 West 36th Street. $8.
On Wednesday, DuClaw Brewing Company releases new seasonal Naked Fish at all Maryland locations, including Arundel Mills. Five-
seven-piece North Carolina band the Love Language performs at Metro Gallery, 1700 North Charles Street. $8.
On Thursday, Lauryn.Hill.at.Rams.Head. Epic, or epic meltdown? I'll be there either way. 20 Market Place. $65. Doors open at 9:30; she'll go on... whenever she wants. Less drama at the Talking Head, where Lands & Peoples will perform. 407 E Saratoga St. $8.
On Friday, Matmos' Drew Daniel spins at Club Phoenix's coldwave party Ice Age. 1 W. Biddle St. $2. For 60s mod music? Go to Sidebar's monthly Reaction party, at 218 E. Lexington Street. At Windup Space, Shark Tank - Mickey Free, Height, Lord Grunge, and Brendan Richmond - releases its debut album. 12 W. North Ave. Free.
On Saturday, loud upbeat duo Weekends will release their new album at Golden West Cafe. $5. Winks will also perform.
