Weekend Agenda: Wild Times

Looking for an excuse to leave your cave of an apartment on this gorgeous weekend? Or maybe a way to be indoors while every case of cabin fever in the city pours onto patios primed for bad decisions? We’ve got you covered, bro.

The Wild Society, Ag47 Annual Showcase
Tonight, Ag47, a rad local arts collective that mentors girls ages 11-17, is putting on their annual showcase in Logan Square. There’s a $10 suggested donation and tons of cool art will be for sale. Come see what the youths are up to and support girls’ creativity and awesomeness.

Clearance / The Velveteens / The Hecks / Blizzard Babies
After you’re all amped on supporting local teenage art, what could be better than a good pop show? Head over to The Burlington to catch Blizzard Babies, one of my favorite local bands, playing along with Minneapolis indie pop group The Velveteens, and local pop rockers Clearance and The Hecks. This is like the perfect Emily Day.
The Burlington, 3425 W Fullerton
21+ / $10, $12 at door

Saturday, April 18

Duh you already know it’s Record Store Day Saturday. If you’re anything like everyone else we know, you’ve probably already mapped out your route based on special release 7″s, Record Store Day beer collabs, or the availability of coffee and donuts (if not, please see Sei Jin Lee’s tweet below).

If, like me, you slept on this whole thing until this very second, hoping that maybe your laziness would protect you from buying even more records, here’s a list of free in-store shows tomorrow. Harmless, free shows…happening near piles and piles of records (please help me I have a problem).
