'90s relapse weekend! Here's your Good Friday roundup

This weekend is heavy on the flashbacks, as multiple punk and grunge shows usher in our new stage of societal nostalgia.

Friday night features freak-punk outfit The Dwarves at the Bluebird, while downtown at The Walnut Room things will be kept a little more light and carefree with The David James Band and Petals of Spain.

Saturday's where the fun really begins, as the Hi-Dive is hosting Come As You Are, an all-local lineup of bands covering every track from Nirvana's Nevermind. Slim Cessna's Auto Club will be keeping it real across the street at Three Kings, and on the opposite end of the spectrum, Low will be playing with Mercuria and the Gemstars at the Bluebird.

Sunday again serves up rocks to roll, with Grave Babies playing the Hi-Dive (with locals Sauna and The Manxx) and Candlebox (remember Candlebox?) down at the 'Bird. It's all ready and perfectly timed for that flannel shirt kinda season.
