This weekend features some heavy hitters, including sold-out shows for both the Carolina Chocolate Drops at the Old Rock House and Weezer at Plush. Not to worry, though. There are still plenty of worthwhile concerts to check out over the next few days. Choose from Crushed Out or Shonen Knife at the Firebird, Jason Derulo at the Pageant, Allen Stone at the Ready Room and more. Our recommendations await after the jump.

Friday (October 17):

Crushed Out w/ The Maness Brothers, Mister Blackcat, Youngest Children @ The Firebird 8:30 p.m. |$8-$10 Brooklyn duo Crushed Out is touring on its new album, Teeth. Get a taste of its unique brand of self-proclaimed "honky-tonk surf blues" via Bandcamp. (MS)

Farout w/ Second Hand King, Prettygirlhatemachine @ Cicero's 8:30 p.m. | $8-$10 Local hip-hop artist Farout returns from his If We Could Prove It's Possible Tour with a homecoming lineup featuring special guests Julz Vurn and Apollo. DJ Mahf hosts. (MS)

Los Straitjackets w/ Deke Dickerson, Jon Paul Keith and the 145s @ Off Broadway 8 p.m. | $15-$18 There's a strange masked man sitting on in the JD McPherson's most recent music video. Who could he be? There's only one way to find out. (MS)

Also on Friday, consider shows recommended by our critics: Jon Mueller at Foam, the Jayhawks at the Ready Room and Alarm Will Sound at the Sheldon Concert Hall. Just click the links to learn more via extended previews.

Saturday (October 18):

Allen Stone w/ Bad Rabbits, Tommy & the High Pilots @ The Ready Room 8 p.m. | $22-$25 Washington-based soul singer Allen Stone has been compared to the likes of Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye, despite the fact that he looks like the hipsteryest white dude I've ever seen in my life. A testament to his raw talent, to be sure. (DH)

The Glitch Mob w/ The M Machine, Chrome Sparks @ The Pageant 8 p.m. | $22-$27 Watch this video. Glitch Mob parked a subwoofer next to some water and then filmed the H2O in extreme closeup. The result will make your Windows Media Player screensavers jealous. (DH)

Borgore @ Old Rock House 9 p.m. | $25 EDM, all the way from Israel! That's a long ways away, in case you were unaware. (DH)

For another option on Saturday, read about Shonen Knife, performing at the Firebird, from our Out Every Night post.
