Quick hits for your live music pleasure ...

Jamming on a lot of work projects, so this will be quick ...

Tonight, Dave and Phil Alvin with the Guilty Ones at the Aladdin. Getting Dave and Phil together is always a treat. The brothers just released a record of all Big Bill Broonzy tunes and it's a fine piece of work. Been fans of these two for a very long time ... American music at its best ... 8 pm, $25

The Doug Fir has a CD release show for Sassparilla ... in fact they are releasing two different CDs at the same time. You can read about the show and the new CDs here. They will be ably supported on the bill by Casey Neill & the Norway Rats ... 9 pm, $12
And Saturday night at the Doug Fir is Laura Viers ...

You know it's summer when outdoor music begins. Saturday night it's the Zoo Concerts kickoff show with Merle Haggard .... 7 pm, $32-62
