What To Do This Weekend: St. Vincent, Cloud Nothings and more

Here it is: the best of this weekend's live entertainment!

Tonight, we got Cloud Nothings (who I muse on here) at Cafe Bourbon Street, 2216 Summit St., as part of the Agit Reader showcase with Darlings, Boogie Boarder and Gold Circle. 10 p.m., $5, I do believe.

Next door, Scott Lucas of Local H will bring his Mark Kozelek-aping, Jonas Brothers-ridiculing ass to The Summit. Colin Gawel and the Lonely Bones will play too, as will Tilt. This is $8, with doors at 9 p.m.

Then there's Smug Bros., a Dayton outfit featuring Don Thrasher of Guided by Voices/Swearing at Motorists fame, at Carabar, 115 Parsons Ave. (MP3 it up!) The Kyle Sowashes, Bicentennial Bear and Ghost Shirt will play too, giving this Carabar show a distinct Treehouse musk. 10 p.m. and free as can be.

Saturday brings more good music back to Bobo (that's Cafe Bourbon, noob), namely Chicago metal masters Bible of the Devil. I would get you details on showtime and price if the BenCo site would load for me.

And if you dig country in that modern Nashville radio sense of the genre, don't miss Gretchen Wilson at Screamin' Willies at 1921 Channingway Center Dr. out in Reynoldsburg. (Previewed that.) This is billed as a 9 p.m. start. Tickets cost $30.

Best show of the weekend, though, could be St. Vincent in the huge new space at Outland on Liberty, 95 Liberty St. Perhaps you noticed my interview with mastermind Annie Clark? Wildbirds & Peacedrums opens dat shindig.
