FOR MAXIMUM FUN: Editor's picks for this weekend

Posted by Justin McIntosh | January 03, 2014 02:24 PM


Love Weezer, but only, really, the first two albums? You're not alone. The Pinkertones got your back.

As I write this, the snow has let up just enough to convince me I’m going out tonight. Might simply be for a beer, but I’m leaving the house one way or another. Good news is, I’ve got options. As always, here’s how I’d spend my weekend if I could be everywhere all the time. 

FRIDAY

Jesse Henry, Poe’s Run

At The Rambling House Brewery

Is artisanal soda pop Columbus’ next craft scene set to take off? I don’t know, but I’ve been intrigued by Rambling House since learning about them some time ago. That interest intensified this week when I saw their ad in our paper and noticed the Hudson Street establishment is also serving cocktails and beer and showing concerts that lean toward the Americana/bluegrass/folk spectrum. I like all those things, so I’m fixin’ to finally check out this South Clintonville soda pop shop Friday.

SATURDAY

The Pinkertones

At Kobo

I’m not, as Alive writer Andy Downing suggested most Weezer fans to be, either a Pinkerton or Blue Album kind-of-guy. I prefer both, even if that unsettling feeling I got when I first heard Pinkerton way back in the fall of 1996 still sticks with me today. If you’re like me in that regard, you can’t go wrong attending either Friday or Saturday’s performances (or both). The local Weezer cover band will play both albums this weekend, with each night’s performances decided by a coin flip.

I’ve been eyeing these beautiful bottles since first setting eyes on them at Lucky’s in Clintonville. This weekend, they will be mine.
