The Lonely Forest at Doe Bay

This coming weekend is going to be full of more fun than an swim-up pool bar. Friday night (7/9) we have the blessed reunion of Carissa’s Wierd at the Showbox at the Market. If you haven’t heard why you must be there, you can sample their song and hear some reasons on our recent Imaginary Mixtape podcast. Or you can just read intricate tales of our long term Carissa’s Wierd love affair.

That same Friday night our friends at TBTL are hosting an amazing night of “Imaginary Radio” over at the swanky new Columbia City Theater with performances by Sir Mix A Lot, Rachel Flotard, John Roderick, Ben Huh and others.  It’s already sold out, but for those of us that can’t make it on Friday, the TBTL-ers have added a Saturday night show (some tickets still available) with an equally stellar lineup: Smoosh, Blue Scholars, The Lonely Forest, Andy Haynes and a couple more surprises!

Of course, one look at the imaginary calendar and you can see a bunch of other possibilities too! Which way are you headed this weekend?
