In case you missed it, we posted the weekend edition of Coming Distractions early. This is your first place to find out who we've selected to play the big free shindig Saturday night.

For the uninitiated, each year Alive selects five of the most promising up-and-coming local acts as Bands to Watch. We put each group on one of five collectible covers, give them a prominent feature in the paper and round them all up for one of the best concerts of the year. Best of all: The show is free.

Doors open at 9 p.m. Saturday at Skully's, 1151 N. High St. See you then.
