Over the Weekend: Volcano Choir, Yellowcard, Treasure Mammal, and Planet of the Drums

So, how was your weekend? Perhaps you got all up in the club, got in as much revelry as possible, or got yourself into one of the big concerts going on around town. Then again, maybe you just sat around killing time before the big NFC or AFC championship games came on the tube.

Meanwhile, the Up on the Sun staff spent the past several nights hitting up shows like Treasure Mammal's wild gig at Trunk Space on Thursday, Volcano Choir's intimate performance at the Crescent Ballroom the next night, Yellowcard's celebration of the 10th anniversary of Ocean Avenue over at the Nile in Mesa on Saturday, and elsewhere. In case you missed any of these must-see shows, here's a look back at each.
