Weekend Picks: Comedy, Clipping, Vinyl, Foodies, and a Wonder Fair Patio Show

There's a surprising amount going on in LFK this weekend besides the big Seedco Harvest Fest we already showcased.

Kick off the weekend with a very special 9/11 edition of "Good Time" at the Replay, showcased (appropriately enough) by LFK's "master of melancholy," Mr. Chance Dibben.  The FB event page is here.

A better chance for actual political commentary kicks off after the comedy, with a stellar hip-hop show featuring LA's Clipping and LFK's Ebony Tusks and Heartfelt Anarchy. The FB event page is here.

There is always a music nerd stampede at the first night of the Audio Reader sale, which kicks off at the fairgrounds on Friday.


Put a bird on it!  Here's a poster for our pal Til Willis' show at Frank's on Friday.  FB event page here.

Saturday is reserved for SeedCo, obviously.

And on Sunday, Mount Eerie pops up on the patio at...Wonder Fair.  Yes, Wonder Fair has a patio.  Some of you may have discovered La Guerre playing out there during a recent summer Final Friday.  It's pretty cool, except for the Burger Stand grease smells wafting through.  But that's a small price to pay to see Mount Eerie and Your Friend.  Actually, it's a rather large price by Wonder Fair standards ($12).  The FB event page is here and 78 people claim to be going even though the space only holds 60.  We'll be listening from the Burger Stand back patio or possibly near the dumpsters.

And Lawrence Restaurant Week kicks off on Sunday.  We'll have more coverage next week.  Chip is excited about sampling the prix fixe menu at Pickleman's.
