Tera Melos, Dr. Dog, Autumn Bottom Brews Fest, Southern Belles, Three Sheets to the Wind

Southern Belles continue their First Friday residency at The Camel this Friday. It's $7 to get in, doors open at 9 and Woodwork will open. Though the Belles play mostly originals these days, here they are a couple weeks ago dipping into the Floyd catalog for "Time" and "Echoes":

Saturday night, get your yacht rock on with Three Sheets to the Wind at The National. Tix are $15 in advance, $20 at the door and $35 if you want VIP. Doors will open at 7, show starts at 8 with opener Party of Four (America's #1 Tribute to 90's Jangle Pop, or at least they say so). Three Sheets will don a musical costume for mini-set of Tom Petty's greatest hits. Party of Four's musical costume will be a mini-set of Gin Blossoms. There will also be a costume contest with prizes for Best Yacht Rock Attire, Best Duo/Team Costume, and Best Overall. Here's some classic Tom Petty with the official video for "Change of Heart":

Sunday at the 17th Street Farmers' Market, the 3rd Annual Autumn Bottom Brews Festival (I think there is a stripper named Autumn Bottom) goes down without strippers, but with lots of good beer, food and music from Andy Vaughan & the Driveline (noon) and Jackass Flats (2:30). The whole event runs from noon until 5 PM and it's FREE.  Here's Jackass Flats at Hoss's on October 7:

Prog Rock band Tera Melos is at Strange Matter for an early show on Sunday night. Tix are $10 in advance, $12 day of show. Doors open at 5 and Zorch and Dumb Waiter open. If you want a preview of their show, here is a 30 minute set Tera Melos did at the famous Amoeba Records in San Franscisco on April 14 this year:

Psychedelic indie rockers from Philly, Dr. Dog, will be at The National Monday night. Tix are $20 in advance, $22 day of show. Benny Yurco and the Revealers will open when the show starts at 8. Doors open at 7. You might like Dr. Dog if you like The Band, Big Star, Harry Nilsson, Beach Boys, The Kinks, or XTC. Here they are performing their new single, "Broken Heart" in Nashville yesterday.

Have a great weekend!
