6. A Thick Mistress Celebration
That's right, folks. Even we at the Weekender can't believe that Thick Mistress has been around for a full decade. Celebrate its 10th anniversary and jam out to the band's brand of hard rock and metal. Supporting acts include Fall of Kings, Outer Year and Ben Grillet. What we are trying to say is that with this show you get a little bit of country and a whole lot of rock and roll. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. on May 31 at The Marquee. 1225 Fourth Street.
