Not the strongest weekend for live music. .

Friday’s Pick 9/15/06:
Tortoise @ Troubadour ($20) – In college I was a huge Tortoise fan. I picked up Millions Now Living on vinyl a few months ago and still think that’s a great record. As I’ve mentioned before, they taught me to love the vibraphone. I’ve only seen them once in concert and it was surprisingly compelling.

Also appearing:
Anavan / Teenage Talking Cars @ the Echo ($5) – Art Crawl 9 party.

Starflyer 59 / Low vs. Diamond @ Spaceland ($8) – From Starflyer’s press release: ” Indie rockers and new wavers alike should find some appreciation here. New Order fans as well as Depeche Mode cronies, not to mention followers of the Pixies and The Jesus and Mary Chain.” Watch a video HERE.

Ben Ashley / Elwood Grace @ El Cid ($8)

Saturday 9/16/06
The Rolling Blackouts / Tsk Tsk @ the Scene
Download The Rolling Blackouts’ “Hung Up on the Hang Ups

Sunday 9/17/06
