Weekend Roundup: Butthole Surfers, Hanson, Cobra Starship, And a Marriage Proposal

Butthole Surfers at the Granada Theater on Friday, Oct. 30
I just realized Butthole Surfers' Gibby Haynes and Paul Leary and I went to the same college (20 years apart, mind you). That's kinda strange, considering the guy who voiced Barney the big purple dinosaur also graduated from Trinity University. There's got to be some apocalyptic meaning in there somewhere...



Hanson at House of Blues on Sunday, Nov. 1
What better way to follow up the Butthole Surfers than with a little Hanson? Don't roll your eyes at me. The trio of brothers played House of Blues Sunday night. According to Carli, they've got some talent going for them.



Cobra Starship at Nokia Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 31

The hot mess that gave us "Snakes on a Plane" and "Good Girls Go Bad" (Leighton Meester, you're no Miley Cyrus) shook it at Nokia on Halloween.



Owl City, House of Blues, Thursday, Oct. 29

And to wrap up this weird edition of Weekend Roundup (because I'm secretly a sap--don't tell anyone), here's a clip of a guy popping the question to his girlfriend on stage during the Owl City concert on Thursday at HOB. No music on this one, just a whole lotta love.
