This weekend's a fun one. Celebrate a couple of great holidays in style: Cherokee Street hosts its eighth annual Cinco de Mayo event complete with three stages of music, and Free Comic Book Day takes over comic shops all over town with special entertainment and more. The next few days also see a couple of new local releases: Leezy B and Steve Shaw. Read on to learn about these shows and more in this edition of weekend concert recommendations.

Friday (May 2):

Leezy B CD Release @ Fubar 8 p.m. | $10 Leezy B's output thus far has proven promising -- check out his Soundcloud page, and if you like it, head to the show and pick up a CD! (DH)

Nathaniel Rateliff @ Blueberry Hill 9 p.m. | $10-$12 In my research on Mr. Rateliff I learned that he is from Denver, so I hit up former RFT music editor Kiernan Maletsky (now the music editor at our sister paper in Denver) and asked what he thought. His review was gushing, and he wasn't wrong. But don't take our word for it, listen for yourself. (DH)

Steve Shaw CD Release w/ Wack-A-Doo @ Off Broadway 7:30 p.m. | $10-$13 Local singer-songwriter Steve Shaw has been at it for nearly twenty years and releases a new CD called Honeysuckle Jump. Hear what it's all about here. (MS)

Twelve Foot Ninja w/ Nothing More, Virucide, As Earth Shatters @ The Firebird 7:30 p.m. | $13 Twelve Foot Ninja is on the rise. The five-piece group recently edged out the likes of Deafheaven, Scar the Martyr and Crosses for "Best New Talent" at the Revolver Golden God Awards. (DH)

Also on Friday, check out Tone Rodent with Demonlover and Willis at Melt.
