Remember earlier in the week when I promised great music as the weekend approached? Well, tonight is a humdinger of a night. Irish crooner Foy Vance (not to be confused with Vance Joy) performs at Soda Bar. He's on the same label as Mumford & Sons if that tells you anything about the caliber of star this guy is bound to become. Meanwhile, the Irenic has an all-ages show with co-headliners Vetiver and the Donkeys. Casbah welcomes Head Wound City and Tolan Shaw plays his first headlining show with his band at the Belly Up. On down the list, there are quality shows all over the place, so don't slack and stay home tonight or you'll seriously be missing out.
