To Do This Weekend

It's been two years since Lo Moda has put out an album, and last time they did, the usually-harsh City Paper called it one of the best local albums of the year. Are you ready yet, for a new one? Well, your patience is finally being rewarded with the sophomoric release of Replica Watches. The band, (which CP calls "grown folks music") is quite jump-around worthy, and you should test out your winter dance moves at The Windup Space TONIGHT. This band is so exciting that last time I saw them play, drummer Scott Braid played the entire set standing up. Just sayin.

I'll say it, this is not a pretty poster. BUT, it's a nice show of all jewelers at the Walter's Art Museum, including a personal favorite- Sherry Insley. The runway show was last night, but it was $150/ticket and $50/glass of champagne... so, I'll say it: I went to Rosemary's Baby at The Charles instead. (AGHHHHHHHHHH).
