This Weekend: Bunky Boutique, Summer of Sound and Dick Cheese

By Jonathan McNamara

With memorial day long gone, the wait may have seemed a bit longer but once again the weekend is upon us.

Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine

Dick Cheese is infamous among music fans. Even if you don't recognize the name, odds are good you recognize what he does. He's the guy that does lounge music covers of songs like "Chop Suey" by System of a Down and "Nookie" by Limp Bizkit.

See Cheese pimp his oh-so-smooth musical talents this Saturday at Celebrity Theater. Doors are at 8 p.m.

Bunky Boutique New Location Launch Party

Here's the dirty little secret: Bunky Boutique is already open at its new location. Maybe they wanted to try the new digs on and see how they fit before they throw a fabulous party.

In any case, BB is kicking things off officially this Saturday from 5:00p.m.-9:00p.m. at 812 North Third Street. Expect bumping grooves and party sustenance.
