The line-up this weekend is as schizophrenic as the weather! Lesson learned: always wear layers, and be thankful if there's a partially broken umbrella in your desk because it's still better than having to wade home in squishy boots. Dress accordingly, especially if you intend on getting hot and heavy at Scottrade Center with Lady Gaga and the mischievous duo of Daniel Hill and Kenny Snarzyk this weekend. What sort of trouble will these two get into next?
Click ahead for this weekend's show recommendations, including homegrown artists Kristeen Young and Jeremy Davenport. Outside of these ten, there's also a two-fer at Off Broadway this Friday: So Many Dynamos celebrates ten years as a band while electro-poppers Née release an EP.
