By: Shelby Lum

It is getting colder, things are beginning to slow down as people prepare for their Thanksgiving holidays. While you have a bit more time on your hands before you prepare for your holiday traveling, take a look at some of the excellent concerts happening around you.  Here are our weekend picks!  Make sure to squeeze some in before you head out for Turkey day.

Friday, November 16th-The Dirty Guv’nahs at Rock & Roll Hotel

The Dirty Guv’nahs have been garnering considerable attention since their formation.  They landed a slot at Bonnaroo, along with continuously selling out venues and bars across the nation.  Earlier this year, Relix Magazine named The Dirty Guv’nahs “On The Verge”.  Both “Nashville” and “Criminal Minds” have taken note of the young musicians talent and featured songs “Honey You” and “Baby We Were Young”.  Don’t miss your chance to see these rising rock stars.

Friday, November 16th-AER at The State Theatre

This fall marked AER’s first headlining tour for their first album Bright Side.  This won’t be their first tour by any means though.  David von Mering and Carter Schultz who make up AER have been on several college tours throughout the country.  Describing themselves as having reggae, indie, pop, and rock influences, the guys of AER are refusing to be pinned into a genre and are ready to take on The State Theatre this Friday.

Saturday, November 17th-LEZ ZEPPLIN at The State Theatre
LEZ ZEPPLIN, although not nearly as famous as the original, has created a massive following and also has become the most renowned Led Zepplin tribute band. SPIN Magazine dubbed them “the most powerful all-female rock band in rock history”. Statements like that are not made for nothing. These female rockers have been wowing crowds since 2004.  Check them out at The State Theatre this Saturday.

Saturday, November 17th-Donavon Frankenreiter at Jannus Live
For any Jack Johnson fans out there who haven’t heard of Donavon Frankenreiter, you need to begin listening immediately.  Another surfer singer, Frankenreiter debuted his first album under his friend Jack Johnson’s label, Brushfire Records.  You can practically feel the worries being lifted as his soft guitar and happy-go-lucky lyrics drift through your speakers.  He is a must see at Jannus Live this Saturday.
