The ten best concerts this weekend: 11/30-12/2
Mac Lethal at the Marquis Theater is one of the ten best concerts this weekend.
Ah, yes, welcome to the weekend! Long week, everybody, or is it just us? Well the good news is that we made it to end of another. The even better news is that there's no snow in the forcast, and there's another batch of good shows worth checking out. While there fair number of enticing acts coming to town, the bulk of this weekend's best bets are homegrown, including Tin Horn Prayer, who's celebrating the release of its eagerly awaited new record, Grapple the Rails, at the Bluebird, Wanker, who's celebrating three-decades of being, well, wankers, and Thee Dang Dangs, who also have a new platter. We've got all the shows listed in our concert calendar, or keep reading to see which shows we think are the ten best concerts this weekend.
- Epoch When offers some lyrical insight into his GRIM state of mind
- Thee Dang Dangs talk about their name and what it means
- Tin Horn Prayer keeps its live show lighthearted to balance the darker moments of its music
10. VERTICAL HORIZION/WINGER @ GRIZZLY ROCK | 11/30-12/1
Yearning for the bygone days of yesteryear before smart phones and social media? The Grizzly Rock has a pair of back-to-back bills to appeal specifically to these sort of sensibilities. Consider it your own personal retro weekend. Tonight, the roadside roadhouse hosts the dudes in Vertical Horizon, the gentlemen behind late-'90s radio staples like "Everything You Want" and "You're a God." More wistful for the '80s? Good news: On Saturday night, the wayback machine gets dialed back a decade earlier to the polished hard rock sounds of Winger, fronted of course by local-boy-done good, Kip Winger.
