THE NEED FOR WEED

Everybody knows that up in Vancouver it's a lot easier to get your hands on some Weed, but that's just because the BC is where the wonderfully muddy, feedback-prone band comes from, silly. Well, you won't want to miss your chance to catch the lo-fi act that balances effortlessly between happy and hard, upbeat and yet still interesting and artistic when they pass through town on a West coast tour. Weed plays at Club Congress on Thursday, Feb. 12 with Seattle's So Pitted and local support from Prom Body and Get a Grip. Tickets for the show are $5. The all ages show starts at 6 p.m.

 

HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE

Motown legend Gladys Knight is dropping by the Fox Theatre for an once-in-a-lifetime live performance. The soulful diva is known for such hits as "Midnight Train to Georgia" and "Neither One of Us," but you probably already knew that, right? Of course you did. Anyways, you can catch her (without the Pips) on Sunday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. Tickets, which range from $44 to $125 depending on where you sit, can be found online, along with more information, at www.foxtucsontheatre.org.

 

LOVE IS NOT EXTINCT

Did you really forget Valentine's Day again this year? It's fine, don't panic. Nothing says "I love you so please don't hurt me" like tickets to a darling duo of indie boys playing sweet melodic jams to serenade your sweetie in ways you only wish you could. With a new album out called "Individ," The Dodos are your ticket out of the doghouse. However, if you plan on spending the day alone, might I recommend a strong drink and their song "Winter"? It can apply to pretty much every relationship gone sour, so enjoy. The Dodos play Club Congress on Monday, Feb. 16 with Springtime Carnivore starting at 7 p.m. Tickets at $13 in advance at www.hotelcongress.com or $15 the day of.
