Happy weekend, everyone! In this edition of our weekend best bets, we talk about an experimental pop act from Switzerland, I Went To a Show.com's latest showcase, the Little Big Bangs vinyl release show and much more. If you didn't get tickets to see Billy Joel or Ben Folds, fret not -- there are plenty of other ways to stay entertained. Read on for our recommendations, and let everyone know what else is going on in the comments.
Friday (April 11):
DJ Captain Crunch w/ T-Zank, Scalp Squad v Quasar Camp, Mathias & the Pirates, Seymour Awesome, Parlo Martin, Sir Racha @ The Demo - $12-$20 And here I thought the only game this guy had was cereal-based. Nice moves, Cap'n. (DH)
Ovlov w/ Disco Doom @ Fubar 8 p.m. | $10 Ovlov comes all the way from Connecticut and plays some of the catchiest pop-structured alt-rock your ears will ever hear. Their tourmates, Disco Doom, make their way into town from even further away -- Zürich, Switzerland, to be exact. Click on the bands names to hear some tracks, and check them out in person (cuz who knows if/when they'll ever come back). (MS)

The Little Big Bangs Record Release w/ Middle Class Fashion, Bug Chaser @ Schlafly Tap Room 9 p.m. | free The Little Big Bangs finally commits its punky, raw rock'n'roll to vinyl -- an accomplishment certainly worth celebrating. Read a review of the tunes in Homespun. (MS)
