Weekend Checklist: Die Antwoord, Sharon Van Etten and Dosh

Weekend Checklist: Die Antwoord, Sharon Van Etten and Dosh
We may not have Lollapalooza, but there are still plenty of bands in the Twin Cities this weekend. This Friday Dosh releases his new 7" at the 7th Street Entry while Haley Bonar takes on the Turf, fronting the new wave band Gramma's Boyfriend. Be sure to hang around First Ave and the Entry Saturday night. Starting off early, Sharon Van Etten and Tennis play the Mainroom, while Shonen Knife rocks out in the 7th Street Entry, then the act everyone has been anticipating, the bizarre South African duo Die Antwoord plays the Mainroom into the late night. Buckle Up.
