No one could bear to do this whole weekend all by themselves. But, that is what friends are for. So-we rallied, inspirational music videos and all, for a weekend, that, much like the Spice Girls, has a little something to offer to everyone, no matter what your taste type is. Lets do this together. OK?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgDdeBrGrro

Wherever you are, remember to do a bad decision shot in my name. Anyway, options include:
On the early tip:

- Fort Reno!
if you’re looking for shows:
- Capstan Shafts are at The Black Cat
- and the increasingly buzzy local band Little Bigheart and the Wilderbeast are at RNR Hotel
if you’re looking for dance parties:
- John Thornley and Philippe from Fatback come together like VOLTRON and bring you the single most fun night to dance to (and have tambourine injuries to) QUE SERA @ Napoleon
- Our very own Peter throws down some classic rock with some classic videos for his Bandannas night @ Little Miss Whiskey’s
