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

6. HEAD FOR THE HILLS @ CERVANTES' | SAT, 12/1/12
One of the finest bluegrass acts to emerge from these parts, Fort Collins-based Head for the Hills serves up quite a collection of tunes on its self-titled sophomore release. On record, the quartet (along with some help from Bill Nershi, Drew Emmitt and others) digs in and kicks up the dust on cuts like the energetic, harmony-laden opener, "One Foot in the Grave," and "Chupchik," a high-paced, backwoods instrumental romp that's injected with a bit of klezmer. The bandmembers are clearly quite deft at their instruments, whether it's guitar, violin, upright bass or mandolin, and with Gus Skinas, who's engineered a ton of Rolling Stones discs, recording the whole thing, Hills is a thoroughly listenable and impeccable-sounding disc.

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.
