This weekend is one for nostalgia. There's the PG-13 excess of the Nickelodeon '90s that comes with a concert fronted by Blink 182 (and shared with My Chem), but alongside it is the sticky sweet seasonal longing that will make you miss the beginning of this summer before Katy Perry has even finished belting out her final lines about it. It's a mixed bag again on the local scene, where Pokey Lafarge and the South City Three will take to South City with their new album Middle of Everywhere tomorrow. The Cold Cuts, Syna So Pro and a show dedicated entirely to the Beatles' Revolver round out a weekend of new music and old favorites.
