You can ease into your weekend this evening with some "folky fiddle tunes" from local band Fingal at 6 p.m. up at the Mad River Brewery. This is a free show and I'm hearing that the big tent is coming down soon, so make sure to bring some sunblock for you and the kiddos. David from local psych-rock band White Manna tells me that it's joining Sub Pop band Heron Oblivion at The Miniplex tonight. Heron Oblivion has a drone-y, pulsating, mildly psychedelic vibe and a local connection through bassist Ethan Miller who some of you may recall from Comets on Fire and Howlin' Rain so that should prep you for a bit of what you'll hear tonight at 8 p.m. for $7. If bluegrass is more up your alley, The Jam has Thursday Night Bluegrass hitting the state around 9 p.m. Again, no word on the cover charge so let's go with $5-ish. The Alibi is known for its rare Thursday night show and wouldn't you know it, tonight's one of those nights. On the bill are heavy rockers out of San Diego Sacri Monti, who will be the first ones up around 11 p.m. Local instrumental stoner rockers Ultramafic headline this $5 show. May the fourth be with you.
