Did you know Goby is a kind of fish? Did you also know Mr. Goby was a character in an Agatha Christie novel? More importantly, did you know Goby is an instrumental guitar solo by Kaki King? Great song, unique artist. Check her out at the Natick Center for the Arts on Friday.
Somewhere in the sonic neighborhood of Jack Johnson, Amos Lee is at the Wilbur Theater on Sunday.
Gypsy Punk. How can you not be interested in the sound of that. Gogol Bordello. Even more interesting sounding. At the House of Blues, Friday.
Toad the Wet Sprocket has been making great indie/folk music on and off since the mid 80s. They’ve got new music out and are Showcase Live in Foxboro on Saturday.
Re-formed and at it again, Wire is a post-punk band that started in the mid 70s, and also has been on-again, off-again. They’re currently on, and playing Downstairs at the Middle East on Sunday. Can 50 years play punk? Go see them and find out.
Last but not least, the Mountain Goats are at the Paradise. Recommended.
You can see this list in more detail here.
As always, drink responsibly (or better yet get a driver!), drive safely, and information on all this and more can be found at boston music this weekend.
