Good Friday: Oysterfest, The Drums, Slayer, Glen Campbell, Jamie Lidell, Drive By Truckers, Marc Ribot, Jeff The Brotherhood, Black Crowes, Rush, and More

For two weekends in a row, the biggest show in town is in Frisco. There is, in fact, something fishy going on up there, and 

you can read about that here


While you're at it, make plans to attend the inaugural Oysterfest at Lochrann's Irish Pub and Eatery on Saturday. As we've mentioned quite a bit over the last few weeks, Rhett Miller, Efterklang, Bowerbirds, and Telegraph Canyon will be headlining the bill along with 15 other bands.

Not up for going to Frisco two weeks in a row? Well, here are some shows we've been talking about all week.

On Friday, The Backsliders bring their straightforward rock to Lochrann's in Frisco, and husband and wife group The Cush will be at Double Wide. The Drums and Young Friends will be at The Loft, and Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax will be at Superpages.com Center.

On Saturday, The King Bucks will be at the City Tavern and Smile Smile will be at The Prophet Bar along with Air Review. Glen Campbell will be at the Bass Performance Hall with the help of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, and Jamie Lidell and Twin Shadow will be at the Granada Theater. Drive By Truckers and Henry Clay People will be at House Of Blues, and Marc Ribot will be a part of the "Storytellers at the Kessler" music series.

More of this weekend's shows after the jump.

Filling the niche of Beatles songs done bluegrass style, Beatlegras has an interesting take on The Fab Four's catalog.

The Angelus, Daniel Folmer, Burntsienna Trio, The Heartstring Stranglers
Saturday, September 25, at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios

Long time Denton/Dallas dark shoegaze act The Angelus will be at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios. Emil Rapstine and company are known for their guitar assault, so maybe grab the ear plugs for this one.

Jeff The Brotherhood, Leg Sweeper, Wild Harem
Saturday, September 25, at The Nightmare

Thanks to Parade of Flesh, Nashville garage two-piece Jeff The Brotherhood are coming to town. And they are indeed brothers. They'll be at the Nightmare along with Dallas' own garage two-piece Leg Sweeper.

Menkena, Royal Forest, Oh Whitney
Saturday, September 25, at Double Wide

Local shoegazer act Menkena's debut album is spacious and grand, and it's live performance is ethereal, mellow, and huge all at once. This should be a great show in the Double Wide's 75-person capacity venue.

Saturday, September 25, at The Pearl

Very bluesy dad rock.

Black Crowes, Band Of Heathens
Sunday, September 26, at House Of Blues

Very bluesy dad rock. 

Sunday, September 26, at Superpages.com Center

Something about the name Neil Peart instantly inspires air drumming all over the world. The original prog-rockers will be at Superpages for what is sure to be a predominantly male audience. And there will be drum solos.

That's it from us. Make sure and list anything we missed in the comments and have a great weekend!
