The biggest local music event of the weekend is Lost Weekend Records' five-year anniversary celebration at Ruby Tuesday, 1978 Summit St. The party goes down all night Friday and Saturday, starting at 8 p.m. sharp both nights. Check the poster above for the listing of bands; seems like the first ones listed are scheduled to go on earliest.
Another, higher-profile anniversary event is tonight's 10-year celebration for Power 107.5. The hip-hop/R&B station is bringing hitmakers Fabolous and The-Dream to BOMA, 595 E. Broad St. The station's site instructs fans to "dress to impress," which might explain the exorbitant $40-75 ticket price. Read all about it in Wes Flexner's preview, then show up some time after 9 p.m.
Tomorrow's biggest event is the Tommy Jay record release show at Carabar, 115 Parsons Ave. Jay, an under-recognized Columbus music scene staple, will celebrate his 1986 cassette Tom's Tall Tales of Trauma re-released on CD and vinyl through Columbus Discount Records. A few of Jay's friends from nearby Harrisburg will perform around 8:30, followed by Jay and his expansive band, then Mors Ontologica and Necropolis. Read my show preview for more on this exciting unearthed treasure, then turn out early for the free show.
