at State Theatre
Friday, 08/19/16, 7pm ($48-$273)
You know we love “Weird Al” Yankovic. What is truly amazing is that, while many of us have not kept up with modern popular music, Weird Al is still on top of things! And not only that, but with recent releases like Alpocalypse and Mandatory Fun, Weird Al is proving that he’s still the king of music parodies. He’s been doing it before the internet, kids.
Even though these are seated shows, everybody stands up. It’s annoying! Also these “theatres” shows tend to start exactly on time and must end before curfew, so show up early if you don’t want to miss a thing.

at Hall's Island
Saturday, 08/20/16, 4:30pm ($50)
This is not a typical venue for music: Hall’s Island... but it makes sense for a band as massive as Wilco. They’ve simply outgrown First Avenue’s mainstage and need to play a bigger venue (but not “stadium-size” venues), so a stage in an open field is just perfect for Wilco.
Please note start time: 4:30pm for doors, which means Kurt Vile and his band The Violators will be on stage around 5pm. You will not want to miss Vile, so plan accordingly.
We previously caught Vile at the now-defunct 400 Bar in 2012 and at the much larger Rock the Garden in 2014. We wrote, “Vile, founding member of indie band The War on Drugs, and his band of skinny, curly-haired rockers played an exhilarating 60+ minute set with a smattering of songs from not only his latest release, but also lo-fi gems Childish Prodigy and Constant Hitmaker.”
Vile’s latest b'lieve i'm going down... is available now.
