Freakin’ Weekend: 9.25-9.27

RUN: Ponytail’s in town.

Deb Olin Unferth (Reading) / Gerber Lounge in EPB / 530PM / FREE
As we mentioned earlier, you’d better get your literary rocks off with McSweeney’s Press superstar Deb Olin Unferth who reads on campus later this afternoon. If you’re into slightly experimental and entirely humorous fiction then be there for sure. A Q&A will follow the reading as well as a general rubbing of the elbows and foreheads.

Ponytail / The Mill / 9PM / $6
Chuck Berry, the grandfather of rock n’ roll, is playing this weekend, but better yet: His grandchildren, Ponytail, are melting faces at the Mill on Friday night. Not to be missed for fans of rock or those who even have a fleeting interest in what we call “contemporary music”. Ponytail, like other famous Baltimore acts that precede them (no, we ain’t talking about Beach House sleepy pants),bring orgasmic noise when they play live. Catch ‘em doin’ their thing alongside fellow hype-mongers High Places and Midwestern all-stars, Wet Hair and Peaking Lights. And lest you forget, we’re running a special merch give-away on Mission Freak. All you have to do is email contest [at] missionfreak [dot] com and put “High Places Contest” in the subject line to get mad free merch from the High Places camp.

Haweye Football feat: non-NFL material OR Punk Brunch feat: Birth Rites and more / Kinnick or 533 Olive St. / 1030AM / Cost: variable
Um, it’s homecoming: go see the game, dude! Well, at least I’ll be there but for the football haters, there’s always Punk Brunch. Instead of tailgating to the sounds of fratboy piss and vomit why not let a bunch of hipsters piss and vomit all over you at the one and only legendary PUNK BRUNCH! Saturday mornings aren’t just for football anymore: they’re for the slightly mathy crunch of local heroes, Birth Rites. Enjoy vegan and carnivorous eats, as well as beer, soy milk, and rock music at this annual underground bash on the other side of the river. Brought to you by that bad-ass drummer who used to be in Foul Tip. heehee, you said “tip”! wink wink…
