Weekend Warrior, March 12 - 14

What’s the plan for this weekend? We’ll be heading over to Kung Fu Necktie Saturday night for Drink Up Buttercup’s debut Album Release Party for Yep Records’ Born and Thrown on a Hook, our March CD of the Month (check out our review below to the right). They’ll be joined by the monster-lovin’ crew Conversations with Enemies. For once, KFN’s weekend band curfew works in our favor. Since the night will still be young, we’ll be making the trek to West Philly to the Mar Bar for the homecoming of Free Energy who just released their debut album earlier this week Stuck on Nothing on Astralwerks/DFA Records (check out our interview with singer Paul Sprangers below). We’ll hopefully be rockin’ out with you at both shows! Drink Up Buttercup - Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 7:30pm, $8, 21+ (Photo by Bryan Bruchman) myspace.com/drinkupbuttercupband, Free Energy - Mar Bar, 200 S. 40th St., 9pm, $10, 21+ myspace.com/freeenergymusic
