Bio Ritmo, Bush League, Southern Belles, NO BS! Brass Band

This is a good weekend to find your new favorite local band. We start on Friday night at Lulu's  with Latin music from Bio Ritmo. The show will start at 9, first set starts at 10, second set starts at 11:30. It's $8 to get in and this is a benefit for VACLAA (Virginia Center for Latin American Art) which is celebrating their first anniversary. Here's Bio Ritmo playing at Balliceaux on 12/21/12:

Also on Friday night, NO BS! Brass Band will be at The Camel. Show starts at 9:30 and it's $7 to get in. Here's NO BS doing "Meat Wagon" on 12/14/12:

Saturday night, it's a full-on blues show at The Canal Club with The Bush League. Doors will open at 5:30 and The UnXpected, Mike Lucci Band & Andrew Alli and The Last Night's Blues Band will open. The Bush League recently hit #21 on Amazon's Blues Rock category with their new album, "Can of Gas and a Match". Here they are in 2011 at the Jewish Mother in VA Beach:

Wednesday night at Cary St. Cafe, The Southern Belles will get you dancin' with their funky, jam rock. Show starts at 10 and there is no cover. They play a nice mix of originals and covers. Here they are doing The Band's "Across The Great Divide" at The Camel on 9/29/12:

Here's Paste Magazine's fourth best video of 2012 which feature Jack White being kidnapped by a bunch of bad ass kids in "Sixteen Saltines". There's nothing like getting some cool tattoos when you are 10. And watch out for that blue kid. He's a bad mother....

Have a great weekend!
