If you hadn’t noticed by the header, this weekend is more than packed with good shows. And you can’t attend them all, which means you’ve got some decisions to make.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 14
Philadelphia reverb-rock trio Moon Women opens (alongside Roanoke, VA’s Eternal Summers) for Detroit’s Tyvek in a No Wavelength show at 8 p.m. at Cha-cha’razzi. Given that the majority of tonight’s other shows feature local headliners (who’ll likely be playing again in the area much sooner than Tyvek or Eternal Summers will), it’s a good night to catch these two out-of-town acts. Also playing: Ladies Auxiliary at Kung Fu Necktie (8 p.m., 21+, $5); Power Animal + Hello Shark, Taco Kitty, Snow Caps at Danger Danger Gallery (9 p.m., all ages, $5-$10); Grimace Federation + Caveman, Somata at North Star Bar (9 p.m., 21+, $10).
SATURDAY, JANUARY 15
Two of The Key’s favorites, Slutever (with Omar + Easter Vomit at Kung Fu Necktie; 7:30 p.m., $21, $5) and Grandchildren (with We Are Hex + Fake Babies, TRTL at The Ox; 8 p.m., $5) perform in relatively close proximity to each other on Saturday night. Meaning, if you plan your night accordingly, you can probably catch both. (Which we’d recommend.)
SUNDAY, JANUARY 16
Local ’60s-pop-inspired quartet The Armchairs perform with Horse’s Mouth + Virtual Virgin, Paper Masques at Kung Fu Necktie (8 p.m., 21+, $5).
