Tower Groove Records Double Album Release Party 3 Shows, 3 Venues, Friday, Saturday and Sunday Click on the days listed above for specific show details. @ El Lenador / Off Broadway / Mangia Times Vary | $5 What more can we say? Go for the good vibes, stay because the bands all kick ass. (KM)

Saturday:

Pointfest 30 Saturday and Sunday @ Verizon Wireless Amphitheater w/ Incubus, Rob Zombie, Chevelle, Cypress Hill, Megadeth, 10 Years, Awolnation, P.O.D., Middle Class Rut, Trapt, Hurt, Shaman's Harvest, Cavo, Neon Trees, Taproot, Janus, Foxy Shazam, more Times Vary | $38 Cypress Hill, Megadeth, Awolnation (yeah, I said it) and Foxy Shazam are among the most notable of this year's Pointfest entertainers; fans of expensive beer and standing in the sun will also find ample reasons to attend the two-day Verizon Wireless Ampitheater shindig. (DH)

Mariachi El Bronx @ The Firebird w/ Two Gallants 8:00 p.m. | $15 Originally the alter-ego of punk band The Bronx, Mariachi El Bronx has since eclipsed its origins and become a well-respected force in their own right, having opened for the Foo Fighters on tour last year and collected a legion of fans worldwide in the meantime. (DH)

Soma CD Release Show @ Lemmons w/ Better Days, The Quiet Type, Tok 8:00 p.m. | $5 Local indie-rockers (emphasis on the "rock" part) Soma will be releasing their first album in their 7 years of existence at this show -- and based on the track they put online, its well worth the wait. (DH)

Show Me Showcase @ Plush w/ Justin Kinkel-Schuster, Pretty Little Empire, Bo and the Locomotive, Netherfriends, Dots Not Feathers, Last To Show First To Go, Trotting Bear, Little Horn 6:00 p.m. | $5 It's like the videos except with real people and booze! This lineup was impressive to begin with -- the addition of Kinkel-Schuster makes it a paradise for fans of beautifully busted songwriting. (KM)
