Top Weekend Events 2/26 – 28

Ok, so your Wednesday post is a Thursday morning post.  Oh well.  You’re just going to have to deal.

Country musicThis weekend’s top events are dominated but music.   All forms of music, from pop to country club.  As previously mentioned, Mr. Kid Rock fits into all these categories.  He’s such a chameleon.  His Born Free Tour is exceptionally popular.  Also reappearing on this list is former Phish front man, Trey Anastasio.  Representing  the country music world are Jason Aldean, who frequently appears with American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, and John Mellencamp.  Jason Aldean is cute, he’s talented, what’s not to love about him?  John Mellencamp also reappears on this list with his country rock style which has been exceptionally popular for decades.  It’s possible for him to perform old classics like “Pink Houses” and “Jack and Diane.”  Not to be forgotten is club music superstar Kesha.  The kids love her digitized vocal sound with out of control party antics. 

George Lopez also shows up on his list for his hysterically funny comedy show.  His “Lopez Tonight” tour  is selling out well, particularly with the Latino community.  The Fox Theatre in Atlanta is going to be busy this weekend!

For your sporting events to take notice of, the Clippers vs. Celtics game, Coyotes vs. Blackhawks game, the Loyola vs. Butler game, as well as the Bashas Supermarket 200 racing event.  For the Clippers vs. Celtics, it’s East vs. West is an awesome rematch from their December 27th game where the Clippers won by 2 points.  Rajon Rondo and Baron David are sure to be equally matched again.  The Blackhawks are still defending their 2010 Stanley Cup championship.    The Bashas is another NASCAR  Nationwide Series event held in Arizona and features race record Jeff Burton, 2000 (115.145 m.p.h.) and Qualifying record: Joey Logano, 2010 (134.048 m.p.h.) .
