For once, all of the weekend's top live music options are congested around High Street on campus. How convenient that the students have cleared out.

Friday: These New Puritans and El Jesus de Magico at Wexner Center, 1871 N. High St. The show costs $14 and begins at 9 p.m. sharp. [preview]

Saturday: !!! at Urban Outfitters, 1782 N. High St. This one starts at 7 p.m. and is free as part of the Free Yr Radio campaign to promote OHIO.FM. [preview]

Sunday: Iron & Wine (pictured) at Newport Music Hall, 1722 N. High St. Doors open at 7 p.m., The Uglysuit opens and tickets cost $23 in advance and $25 day of show. [preview]

Otherwise you may want to watch the Columbus Crew try to break their slump at Kansas City (8 p.m., ONN), see the new Incredible Hulk or try one of John Ross' outdoor adventures—bam, bam, bam.

Oh, and be sure to pour one out for Tim Russert.

See y'all next week.
