Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Chadd Thomas Memorial + Binarium + The Wrong Ones + DJ Jazzy Jeff + More

End of the weekend madness, Sunday, August 28th, and there’s still some good, good stuff going on. The biggie of the bunch is the Chadd Thomas Memorial Benefit Concert going on tomorrow night at The Continental Club — I haven’t heard a thing about anything new in the investigation of Chadd Thomas’s death, but his friends & scene-mates are gathering together Sunday night to celebrate the guy.

They’ve got a great lineup going for it, too, including vatobilly dudes The Flamin’ Hellcats, Latino ska guys Los Skarnales, countryish pot-rockers Sean Reefer & The Resin Valley Boys, Irish/Scottish folk band Murder the Stout, & rockabilly heroes {Luxurious Panthers}. There’s a $10 suggested donation as a cover charge, and I’m guessing there’ll be other cool things, as well…

Beyond that, there’s also the experimental haven known as the Binarium Sound Series, this time with John Edward Ross, whose performance will be paired with some short films by artist Laura Harrison, Epul Roch, which sounds interesting in a “soundscape” way, and Austinites Daze of Heaven. If strange, improvised, hypnotic music’s your thing, this is probably where you need to be.

On top of that, there’s the 33rd Anniversary Party over at Rudyard’s, an intriguing lineup at The Mink that includes sleaze-rock gang The Wrong Ones, and a Hurricane Katrina Memorial show with The New Orleans Hustlers Brass Band. Oh, and DJ Jazzy Jeff(!) will be playing the Budweiser Superfest at Reliant Arena.
