Weekend Checklist: Best Coast, Dr. Dog, Bouncing Souls

Although many had plans to go to Soundtown this weekend, the Twin Cities is still ripe with musical goodness. Dr. Dog makes a return visit to First Avenue's mainroom this Friday just as The Amsterdam wraps up Day Six of Wabasha Days with The Color Pharmacy. Saturday be sure to wake up early to check out the live music at Tour de Fat and The Northeast Folk Festival. Later in the evening, Best Coast makes an appearance at The Cedar Cultural Center. Lastly, the Minnesota Zoo wraps up the month with Friday-Saturday shows with The BoDeans and Sunday with Robert Randolph & the Family Band. See you later July, it's been real.
