This weekend we're excited about some unusual shows, including collective FarFetched's launch party and Prologue release at 2720 Cherokee and KDHX's benefit on Sunday at Saratoga Lanes. Matt Grayson was involved in a motorcycle accident last fall, and his friends have put together a benefit at Fubar featuring a truly monstrous lineup of local punk and metal mainstays. New records from Superhero Killer and the Vondrukes come out this weekend at Cicero's and Off Broadway, respectively.
