8 Concerts to Catch This Weekend

Friday, Sept. 26


Nelson Ledges Quarry Park started the warm-weather season with two nights of Badfish and they’ll put the summer to bed with the very same this weekend. “Keep Sublime Alive,” the guys in Badfish are known to say. And they’ve been doing just that for years now, performing full sets of Sublime classics in cities around the world. This weekend, they’ll play two nights of the good stuff at Nelson, which means those of you who dig the music festival scene and the sensational sounds of Sublime are getting one last shot at glory. Badfish tours constantly — and their shows are always incredibly fun — but dropping them in forested quarry environs and letting them do their thing over the course of a weekend just amplifies the excitement. Shrub, Tropidelic, Color Wheel and Drunken Sunday round out the weekend bill. (Eric Sandy)

Dierks Bentley/Chris Young/Chase Rice/Jon Pardi

The outdoor concert comes to a close tonight as country singer Dierks Bentley swings through town on his tour in support of his latest album, Riser. An album of righteous anthems, Riser suggests Bentley's maturity. The album begins with the break-up ballad ("Bourbon in Kentucky") and includes a good quotient of love songs ("Five"). Songs such as "Pretty Girls" and "Here on Earth" are a bit dreary so here's to hoping that Bentley turns things up a notch for the live show. Expect his current hit, "Drunk on a Plane," to go over well with the hard-drinking audience that will be on hand for tonight's concert that begins at 7 at Blossom. (Jeff Niesel) $25-$44.75

The Dandy Warhols/Bonfire Beach

Last year marked the 13th anniversary of the Dandy Warhols' classic neo-psychedelic album Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia. To celebrate, the band played the album, which also will be reissued as a box set with a slew of bonus material, in its entirety on a tour that included a stop at the Grog Shop. For the current jaunt, the neo-psychedelic band is again touring in support of 13 Tales, but this time the group has released a live version of the album that was recorded in its Portland, Oregon hometown. It shows just how capably the band can play the songs from the disc. The show starts at 7 at House of Blues. (Niesel) $20 ADV, $23 DOS
