This Weekend’s Concerts, From Passion Pit to the Black Keys


The ever-tireless Vulture was on the job last night, but lots of people did have Monday off in consideration for the New Year's holiday (and, implicitly, in consideration for requisite massive New Year's Eve–induced hangovers that throw all synapses in your brain off for at least three days). That means we almost unofficially had a holiday weekend, and that means our weekly weekend concert roundup is here now, rather than yesterday. Make sense? Maybe it's best just to focus on today's lineup. Present and accounted for: The Roots, Passion Pit, the Black Keys, Girl Talk, Jane's Addiction, Lauryn Hill, Glassjaw, Trombone Shorty, Chuck Berry, and the Honey Brothers. Happy belated 2011!
