What you're doing this weekend

Posted By on Fri, Aug 17, 2007 at 4:04 PM


  • Jason Isbell (Drive-By Truckers), Will Hoge and the ever-lovely Centro-Matic are playing the Social.
  • Kottonmouth Kings and some other awful blunted rap-rockers are playing what amounts to an afternoon show at Firestone. This, of course, is the weekly winner of "If you go to this, you're retarded."

  • But, there's also Disney's Aladdin Jr. at Theatre Downtown. So, you know, you've got choices.


  • Well, there's this:

  • Marc With a "C" is celebrating the completion of his new CD, Normal Bias, with a show at Stardust.
  • The Thread folks are having an under-pressure art show called Make Haste at the Cherry Street Studios.
  • The Orange County Convention Center is hosting Taste of the Nation, in which a bunch of rich people get together to raise money for hungry children by eating really fancy food. But on VERY small plates. Because they care.


  • Erykah Badu performs at House of Blues.
  • Or, if you'd like to actually experience real old-school rather than an old-school act, you could catch KRS-One at Club Element.
  • The Orlando Gay Chorus' latest show, "Of Ghosts and Glory," is all about catching "the musical spirit of pre-Nazi German cabarets." At least that what we said in Selections. It's happening at the Jewish Community Center.
  • And, speaking of ... uh, well, you know, Clay Aiken's doing whatever he does at Hard Rock Live before an audience of extremely in-denial females and not-really-as-perceptive-as-they-think men.
