Weese-Fest 31: Red Collar, The Ts, Left Outlet, Richard Bacchus & the Luckiest Girls, J Chris Smith & Marc Smith, Magic Mike 

When: Sat., July 3 2010

Not one to take another year for granted, Benton Weese celebrates his 31st birthday in grand style, expanding celebrations to a full weekend of guitar-heavy rock. Five acts perform nightly, including swirling psych-proggers Left Outlet each night, while Magician Michael Casey adds his sleight-of-hand trickery on Saturday. Friday also features A Rooster For The Masses' dub-washed post-punk, Bright Young Things' rootsy indie rock, The Trousers' scorched boogie and Skullbuckle's hard Southern anthems. Saturday's slate includes working-class heroes Red Collar, fist-pumping riff potency from The T's and Richard Bacchus, plus Patty Hurst Shifter. Steamrolling garage-blues duo The Loners, post-rock twisters Gray Young, sleazy bar rockers Ghosts of Saturday Nite and a secret local favorite round out Sunday's lineup.

Those in attendance two years ago watched the portly Pour House doorman commemorate by hopping onstage alongside American Aquarium's BJ Barham to count off "Clark Ave." before drunken mayhem ensued. Try your best to keep up with Weese for three debauched nights by purchasing a weekend pass for $20 or paying a $10 cover nightly. Friday and Saturday's shows start at 9 p.m. with Sunday's finale beginning at 7 p.m. —Spencer Griffith
