Weekender Briefs: An 'Un-Valentine’s Show' and a pop-up sale are happening this weekend

Valentine’s Day is Tuesday, and love is in the air — or maybe not.

On Sunday night, couples feeling unromantic, Valentine’s cynics or anyone just wanting to laugh can head to Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium for The Un-Valentine’s Show. The Un-Valentine’s Show features the talents of the Bottle Rocket Cabaret, a duo comprised of John Latini and Jamie-Sue Seal. The Bottle Rocket Cabaret combines music and comedy to create “a feel-good show disguised in backstabbing, love gone wrong and dark little hearts,” according to the event’s Facebook page.

The Bottle Rocket Cabaret is the not the only musical act set to play in Athens this weekend. Four artists signed to the record label Oxide Shed are scheduled to play at The Union Bar & Grill on Friday. Qiet combines punk rock with 1920s jazz, creating “a balance of high-energy chaos and perfect order,” according to the band’s website. The High Definitions combines rock, blues and soul, while Urban Tropic blends numerous genres to create their indie world music. Both bands are based in Columbus. Finally, singer Julia Martin will perform, backed by Athens-based rock band Water Witches.

An array of electronic and indie musicians will be performing Saturday night at a house show at The Ranch, 87 1/2 W. State St. The artists set to perform include electronica duo Echo Mecca, Dayton-based indie rockers Goodnight Goodnight and Mild Movements, the solo electronic project of Ohio University student Tyler Blanck, a senior studying music production. Kashmerik, Comisar and ToyBaux are also on the bill.

Finally, on Saturday afternoon, Little Fish Brewing Company will host a pop-up sale. A variety of locally-made products will be for sale, including leather work, records, spoon jewelry, cosmetics, mustards and pretzels, and Little Fish’s diverse range of beers will be available as well.
