  • Search Parties Album Release - Friday, July 11 @ The Firebird.

This weekend, head to the Firebird to see the band that RFT readers voted the best new band of 2014, Search Parties, as it releases a brand new EP. Little Big Bangs also have a release ready to drop this Friday at Los Punk. For even more excitement in your life, head to Utopia Studios as it hosts its inaugural show in the newly dubbed concert space, the Mecca. More recommendations await in this edition of weekend best bets.

Friday (July 11):

Braid w/ Pity Sex, Signals Midwest @ Fubar 8 p.m. | $15 Braid formed in Urbana, Illinois in the early '90s and were on and off in the naughts. Recently, the emo pioneers signed to Topshelf Records. This tour promotes its newest release since 2011, No Coast. Head to Vintage Vinyl at 5 p.m. to see a free acoustic performance.

Little Big Bangs Tape Release w/ Brother Gruesome, Crazy XXX Girlfriend @ Los Punk 9 p.m. | $5 Little Big Bangs's latest release comes out on cassette via local label Eat Tapes. On the flip side, catch Brother Gruesome, a grungy duo from Oklahoma City. Hear them here.

Journey w/ Steve Miller Band, Tower of Power @ Verizon Wireless Amphitheater 7:30 p.m. | $29.50-$151 There's nothing we can tell you that this ridiculous video doesn't -- very explicitly -- already.

SOJA w/ Trevor Hall @ The Pageant 8 p.m. | $22.50-$27 Formerly known as Soliders of Jah Army, SOJA has amassed quite the following. This show will fill the floor with reggae fanatics, no doubt.

Also on Friday, check out Search Parties' Album Release and Phox at Blueberry Hill. Click the links to read more about the performers via previews.
