Around Town: 3 weekend picks

For Memorial Day Weekend, 2010..... 1)Westside Andy/ Mel Ford Band at the Capital Brewery Bier Garten, 6pm on Friday. It's the official opening to this summer concert staple. Featuring a harmonica player who looks cooler in sunglasses than Bono (Andy), and a guitar player who isn't afraid to play guitar with his tongue (Mel). No cover charge. 2)Gomers 25th Anniversary Yacht Rock Party: Friday night at the Majestic Theatre. It's weird that it's only their 25th anniversary..seems like we've been playing "It's Not Unusual" every Friday morning for 30 years at least. 3)World's Largest Bratfest: Friday thru Sunday at Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center. More brats and Madison bands than you can shake a stick at. My 3 Bratfest picks: Main Street Wisdom, 2pm Friday, featuring Carleen Wild and Dan Smith (as seen on TV!); Aaron Williams & the Hoodoo, Noon on Sunday, a Madison blues band that just won a bunch of MAMA awards; Honor Among Thieves, 3:10 on Sunday, a blues based Madison band featuring the ageless Andy Ewen on vocals and guitar. Freaky Band Name of the WeekKind of A Big Deal Saturday night at Babe's. No cover charge. They were going to call themselves Big F**ing Deal, but they would have had to pay royalties to Joe Biden. A cover band from Janesville...who plays stuff like Green Day and Weezer, and most importantly--Dexy's Midnight Runners!

Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
