Mikey G's Weekend Entertainment Picks

Neko Case
This weekend's top arts and entertainment picks around town, from the guy who's paid to pick them: Friday: Of all Bob Marley's kids who are making music, Stephen Marley sounds the most like his dad. He's also the one who comes closest to Bob's aesthetic ethos. His just-released debut album, Mind Control, is a simmering mix of reggae rhythms and hip-hop beats. He has his dad's social spark, dropping rhymes with spiritual and political smarts. He's at House of Blues tonight. Saturday: The Great Lakes Science Center opens the cool traveling exhibit Baseball As America today. It includes a bunch of memorabilia from Cooperstown: the trophy given to Lou Gehrig at his Yankee Stadium send-off; record-breaking home-run bats used by Babe Ruth, Roger Maris, and Mark McGwire; and a chunk of the left-field wall from Boston's famed Fenway Park. There are also tons of baseball cards, clothing, and equipment on view. Sunday: We prefer the fun and bubbly Neko Case of the New Pornographers to the torch-country Neko Case who makes solid solo records like last year's Fox Confessor Brings the Flood. Either way, we love us some Neko Case, who has a solo show at the Beachland tonight. --Michael Gallucci
