Weekend Picks, Including a Band of LFK Children, More Smutty Metaphors, and Spoon's Return

Thursday brings comedy and tacos to the Replay, but only three headliners are listed for tonight's "Good Time?"  Don't get lazy on us, Harpoon!!  The FB event page is here.

Surely the most adorable event of the week will be a group of musicians' children playing covers of Nirvana and such at the Replay matinee on Friday, as the opening act for Mr. and Mrs. Dodge (also adorable).  The FB event page is here.

Get a sneak peek of the children rockers tonight at 3rd Thursdays at the Percolator (along with short plays by local luminaries like Will Averill).  Details here.

LPL brings LFK's suddenly ever-present Patricia Lockwood to the library for a reading on Friday.  Expect to see a few clueless elderly attendees gasp in shock at the metaphors of the "smutty metaphor queen!"  We were happily on hand last week at her KU reading where she told students that her primary influence was "reading a fuckload of the Bible," called Daniel Tosh a "babyfucker," ordered everyone named Gary to identify themselves, and stunned everyone into submission with a devastating reading of "Rape Joke."

Frank's has got something going on this Saturday.  It looks like this:

Or return to the Replay once more for the most rocking show of the week that is also the most likely to include a bit of tapdancing (if you catch our Schwervon! reference).  Info here


And cap off the weekend with a big-name show at Liberty.  Pitchfork digs the hell out of Spoon's new album (we think): "Theirs is an in-between soul happily seeking limbo as its own destination. It's manly in an old-fashioned way, but still scuffed-up and vulnerable."
