Everybody has an opinion about where to go this weekend. Here are a couple from elsewhere in the blogosphere:
John King at 37Flood has assembled audio of eight tunes by bands playing the Poorcastle Festival this weekend. Check it out here.
Krystin Robertson at Louisville.com has a short preview of the Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival at the Water Tower. Read it here.

In a small change of pace for Terry Harper, who usually books the heaviest and loudest of shows, the concert at The Vernon Club on July 15 is a collection of pop-rock bands, including the Massachusett-based Ghost Town, Begging Victoria, Jeffersonville’s Until Death Do Us Party and Louisville’s Dark Horse. Ghost Town is promoting their latest record, The After Party, which has been selling well, with some of the various packages the band has put together selling out. Happiness! Tickets are a mere $10.

There are those folks in town who just love European rock (Got that, Eddy?), so the show featuring the long-time German thrash metal band Necronomicon should be right up their alley. Necronomicon has fought through some tough times, both artistically with the demise of thrash metal and some legal battles with record labels that required them to forgo using the name for ten years. Nevertheless, the band remained together, and, with the resurrection of thrash in the early part of this century, they were soon enough back at it. Despite the label battles, the band has released three albums this century, the last, Invictus, in 2012. They’ll be at Diamond Pub on July 14, along with Sons of Medusa, Dysphoria and Order Of Leviathan, along with plenty of merch and albums old and new. Tickets are only $10.
Take a look at a new vidoe of “Unconquered”:

George Thorogood and The Destroyers pretty much defined the “endless tour” concept during their heyday in the Eighties, which included the 50/50 Tour – fifty states in fifty days – in 1981. The band has sold a lot of records during the career, with the last gold album coming in 1988. They haven’t stopped recording since, releasing a total of sixteen studio albums, including 2011’s 2120 South Michigan Avenue. “Bad To The Bone” remains his biggest hit; it has a life of its own at this point. Thorogood and the Destroyers will bring the “Forty Years Strong” tour to Horseshoe Southern Indiana on July 3. Tickets are $20, $35.

Here’s what the sound like now: the tune is “I Drink Along,” at Montreux 2013:

The Neighbourhood and White Arrows play Headliners Music Hall on July 3, but unless you have a good friend with a spare ticket or dare to risk the “aftermarket,” you can’t go, because the show is SOLD OUT. While you lament that they should have moved the show to a bigger venue, here’s “Female Robbery” to assauge your grief:
