This Weekend: Light Blood


FRIDAY:

>>> Go ahead and laugh at another man’s crippling stress when Lewis Black plays the Academy of Music as part of his aptly-titled The Rant is Due tour.
>>> It’s a good old fashioned record release show over at Johnny Brenda’s as Adam and Dave’s Bloodline releases their 2×2 EP, and it’s a full bill on top of that with St. James And The Apostles, Sleeping Bag and Arrah And The Ferns all playing the undercard.
>>> WXPN presents Nashville’s Leagues at Milkboy, along with Ex Cops and Goodnight Lights.

SATURDAY:

>>> Your first chance to catch Phillies baseball on TV will be 1:05PM on The Comcast Network, as they open their Spring Training schedule against the Houston Astros. We’re excited, but we realistically give ourselves maybe three innings before we’re tired of Chris Wheeler.
>>> Head over to the Piazza to get your food and drink on at the Spodee Food Truck Round Up, where tons of food trucks will be offering up their usual deliciousness, plus a Spodee-spiked appetizer.

>>> Quentin Stoltzfus’ Light Heat, which does the man’s discography a service by being just great, are playing at Johnny Brenda’s along with Steve Gunn and Spacin’.
>>> And Conor Oberst’s Desaparecidos play a sold out Union Transfer, but if you cared enough you would have had tickets forever ago.

SUNDAY:

>>> Smooth grooves and baby makin’ tunes will be in full force at Underground Arts’ Purple and Black, where a bunch of local musicians pay tribute to Prince and D’Angelo.
>>> And the forecast looks like this is your one day until mid-next week without any rain, so take advantage.
