Want to impress your friends with a weekend chock-full of awesome stuff to do? We've got your back. This weekend, catch a concert at Sweatshop Gallery or The Waiting Room, grab some food at a food truck fest and go cruising on the Missouri River.
Sweatshop Gallery, 2727 N. 62nd St.
Cram into Sweatshop Gallery for an up close and personal show with punk rock group Titus Andronicus. The band is hitting a lot of smaller venues on this tour. Lead singer Patrick Stickles said in an interview with World-Herald writer Kevin Coffey he intentionally seeks out the gnarliest, most mistreated space and makes it his home. Read more of the interview here.
