1 Smells Like a Spelling Error!
We imagine it's hard to name tribute bands. This is the only explanation we have for Nivrana, which is a Nirvana tribute band, that is playing The Marquee, 1225 Fourth St. at 9 p.m. Friday.
2 Twice As Brice!
Two things that we know about country star Lee Brice: He sings "Love Like Crazy" and is one of the partners in the manufacture of American Born Whiskey. Wait, there's a third thing that we know about Lee Brice. He'll be at The Orpheum, 528 Pierce St. at 8 p.m. Friday.
3 Chad Ain't No Fad!
Chad Bruneau & Friends have been doing classic covers of country songs for a very long time. Will they be doing some Merle Haggard or Hank Williams Jr. at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Ickey Nickel, 4700 41st St.? Eh, probably, and you'll love them for it!
4 Eat, listen, repeat!
Musician Bruce Veneziani will be playing an all-acoustic set as part of 4 Brothers Grill & Bar's Summer Patio Series at 6 p.m. Friday at 3322 Singing Hills Drive. So, tap your toes while you're dining on some prime rib. OK, now we're hungry!
5 Gotta Have Faith!
Retired journalist (and former Weekender scribe) Joanne Fox will be discussing the role religion plays in the media in "Evangelizing the Faith Through the Airwaves," at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Betty Strong Encounter Center, 900 Larsen Park Road.
