When I was young, I used to love Friday night because it meant TGIF (Thank Goodness It's Funny) -- the ABC block of programming that included Dinosaurs, Full House,Boy Meets World, Hanging With Mr. Cooper, Muppets Tonight, and Family Matters. I really liked those shows.
I don't love any Friday night programming these days, but I do love weekends, because it means some of the best musical shows. We've covered Red, White, and UFest, Carla Bozulich,Down, and Nappy Roots, but if you're looking for something other than those recommendations, here are five more shows that ought to keep you moving this weekend.
Friday, September 9:
Americana stalwarts The Gourds play The Compound Grill (check out their cover of "Gin and Juice").
