Have you seen a hotter Saturday night lineup? Holy cow, with Foals, Mike Doughty, Durand Jones and Ryan Bingham all sold out tonight, you have to believe that live music is alive and well. Fortunately, if you didn't pick up tickets, you can still get out and catch a fun show, like the second night of local Southest by Southwestest at Salty Frog in IB or dream pop outfit Hot Flash Heat Wave at the Irenic. Bar Pink has a New Order and Smiths tribute night with Thieves Like Us and Still Ill, while Che Cafe welcomes indie-pop act And the Kids. There are a ton of live events tonight, so seize the night and catch an amazing show.
