If you’ve read any of the background on goby, you probably know we started the company after I missed seeing Jack Johnson play a gig in Hawaii. In the spirit of trying to help you not miss great shows, we’ve decided to start a tradition of a Thursday morning post letting you know about some of the great gigs going on every weekend (we’re starting in Boston). Without further commercial interruption, here’s some of our favorite bets for this weekend:
If you’re into old school, Blood, Sweat and Tears are playing at the Berklee Performance center.
A little closer to the current century, if you want some indie goodness, check out Deerhunter at the Royale.
Home town folkie girl Lori McKenna is at the Natick Center for the Arts.
Perennial classic acoustic jazz team Acoustic Alchemy is at the Scullers Jazz club.
Finally, Yoko Miwa Trio is playing some great jazz at goby’s home base restaurant, Les Zygomates.
Details of all of these can be found on my weekend music list.
