Weekend Checklist: St. Vincent, Father John Misty, Girls Got Rhythm Fest, Daughtry

Girl power without the Spice Girls is alive and well these days, and the Amsterdam Bar and Hall will be celebrating this weekend with the Girls Got Rhythm Fest in St. Paul. If you're feeling young, stop by Station 4 to check out pop-punk group Go Radio with This Providence; if not, St. Vincent and Chastity Brown will restore some indie-cred. Tyrone Wells and Daughtry will round out Mother's Day with their radio-friendly tunes, if you haven't purchased a gift yet for your mom.
