There’s a lot going on around town this week, with this weekend’s Essence Music Festival garnering much of the local publicity. The show, which is held at Reliant Stadium on Saturday and Sunday, features Mary J. Blige, Yolanda Adams, Earth, Wind & Fire, LL Cool J, Diddy and Friends, New Edition, Bobby Brown, Steve Harvey, Jaheim, Chris Brown, and much more.

As previously mentioned the Warped Tour hits town on Friday and is sure to attract a lot of attention. More importantly, the Legendary Pink Dots play Wednesday (6.28.06) at Warehouse Live.

Los Skarnales play The Continental Club on Friday, and David Brake and That Damn Band play at Sansone’s. On Saturday, Ceeplus & the House of Bad Knives open with Harry Merry for the Quintron & Miss Pussycat show at Super Happy Fun Land.

Also on Saturday, The Squishees play Rudz, and Numbers hosts “A Wish for The Cure Tribute Concert,” which features The Cure’d: a dark tribute, with Slivered, Nervewreck, and Anguish in Exile.
