Crusher Sound System, 2 Tone Lizard Kings, Vayen, Starlight Girls, and Igor & The Red Elvises This Weekend

Pickster One, Scottie Does, and Dumperfoo don't unite as Crusher Sound System too often, but when they do, it's worth catching.

I saw the trio back in April, and the mixture of Pickster's excellent song choices ("Rock With You") and the heavy live drums of Does were irresistible.

The supergroup teams up tonight at Crescent Ballroom, with an opening slot provided by Mouse Powell. Read on for four more must-see concerts to soundtrack your weekend.
