Graphic by Todd Gill
Weekend Mix artists on tour: Moondoggies in Memphis Jan. 24, La Sera in Nashville March 10, Obits in Memphis March 14, Mogwai in Dallas May 15.

Our friends at The Tale of The Tape are back in the Weekend Mix game for 2011 and we couldn’t be more relieved.

This week’s 10-track sampler includes another dose of great new music including a newish project – Obits – from rock genius Rick Froberg (Pitchfork, Drive Like Jehu, Rocket from the Crypt, Hot Snakes).

Unfortunately, none of these bands are headed to Fayetteville, but a few will be within driving distance (is Nashville too far?) in 2011.

Monday, Jan. 24 – Moondoggies in Memphis, TN (Hi-Tone Cafe)
Thursday, March 10 – La Sera in Nashville, TN (The Basement)
Monday, March 14 – Obits in Memphis, TN (Hi-Tone Cafe)
Sunday, May 15 – Mogwai in Dallas, TX (Granada Theatre)
