Your Memorial Weekend music guide



Perfect weather is nothing without musical accompaniment, so here are a few shows to take into consideration for your Memorial Day weekend planning.

On Friday (aka tonight), you can get your ska on with the top-ranking Aggrolites (critic's pick here, plus you can read our 2009 interview here) at the City Auditorium. Or head on over to the Triple Nickel for a lineup that includes the "death gospel" stylings of Adam Arcuragi & the Lupine Choral Society (last week's interview here).

On Saturday, look for an all-day punkfest beginning high noon at Sunshine Studios (pictured here — kids, don't try this at home). Featured artists include Bleach, Bleach spinoff Sarcastic Bastards and a ton of surprisingly un-Bleach-related bands.

And finally, we suspect you're already aware of MeadowGrass, the second annual music fest which begins Friday night and goes through Sunday just up the road at the idyllic La Foret Conference and Retreat Center. In addition to Grant-Lee Phillips (yep, we interviewed him too, and it's right here), you can catch Great Lake Swimmers, the Greencards and plenty more.

So now you've got even better excuses to opt out of this year's holiday gathering with the in-laws out in Limon. You're welcome!
