Does anyone have any concert-going energy left (or any money, for that matter) after last week's ginormous orgy of music events?

We definitely do, which is why our asses will be out and about this weekend. Since Easter is on Sunday, the schedule is somewhat lighter than normal, but there's still some rather cool concerts and events happening. In addition to the swan song by Valley popsters The Loveblisters (read music editor Martin Cizmar's preview here), goth-rocker Voltaire and indie folk queen Mirah will both be hitting local venues over the next 72 hours. Bizzy Bone (of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony fame) and Viking-theme death metal masters Amon Amarth are also scheduled to be all up in this bitch.
