The ten best concerts this weekend: 11/30-12/2

7. WANKER @ TOAD TAVERN | SAT, 12/1/12
Despite having yet to play a single show, Wanker graced the cover of the December 23, 1987, issue of Westword, looking like a mash-up of the New York Dolls and Adam and the Ants. The group, which started as an idea for a cable-access comedy skit, proved to be too ridiculous and fun not to extend the prank to the public. Wanker combined the sneering, irreverent humor of punk with the high-concept, low-brow execution of the Tubes. Songs like "The Violation of Aunt Bea," "Blister Yer Sister" and "I Touch Myself" were so cartoonish and bombastic that you had to laugh -- or roll your eyes at the juvenile sensibilities therein. Never boring, Wanker (celebrating a quarter-century of existence this Saturday, December 1, at Toad Tavern) is kind of the Andy Kaufman of rock and roll.

Wow, who picked the shows this week? You have moe. below some shitty rapper who is a youtube sensation? You have Winger over Jack Russell? Winger was the only concert I ever walked out during because it was so horrible.
