The Ten Best Shows this Weekend: February 24 to 26


  • Water Liars

Have you sufficiently recovered from last night's EP releases from Theresa Payne and iLLPHONiCS? Good, because there's more new local music in the hopper: Water Liars will release its much-ballyhooed debut, Phantom Limb, tonight at Off Broadway, and Lantern Lights will do the same at Foam Coffee & Beer tomorrow. Los Lobos pay a visit to the Sheldon on Sunday, and tomorrow night you might also find us getting fancy and taking shots at the South City Drunkard's Ball at Mangia. Several more offerings below; let us know what you're up to in the comments.
