This week has a lot of big tickets rolling through town, but a week ago, this weekend’s concert calendar looked even tastier. See, Tasty Burger in Harvard Square had become the new hotspot of the local music scene. That is, until last weekend, when an Idiot Genes show got a bit rowdy and was cut-off 20 minutes in. Since then, the venue has suspended hosting any shows. Luckily, some of these shows have been relocated, including Guerilla Toss and Brooklyn’s Cloud Becomes Your Hand. If you’re looking to attend, check Facebook for updated info. Or if you’d prefer, check out these other shows instead. More
When your band is breaking, sometimes it’s important to take a break. Buzzy psych-folk trio Quilt spent the majority of this year in a self-imposed tour hibernation, either home in Boston or in New York working on “Held In Splendor,” its sophomore record due out on Mexican Summer in January. That is, except for one jaunt to Russia. Before the band’s show tonight at TT the Bear’s Place in Cambridge (along with Happy Jawbone Family Band and locals CreaturoS), lead singer Anna Rochinski caught us up on its new 7-inch “Arctic Shark,” the upcoming full-length, and getting flown halfway across the world with her band mates, John Andrews and Shane Butler, to play the one-year celebration of a venue/café in Moscow.

This weekend brings top tickets to town, as well as some rock solid local bills. King Kanye’s “Yeezus” tour apparently includes enormous mountains on stage and people dressed as Jesus, which is probably the most ridiculous thing ever but OK, it’s kind of awesome, too. Local bands of all shapes and sizes are on big shows as well, so don’t sleep — get out and rock.
