Ben Soundscape ( Courtesy)

In case you’ve completely lost track of the days due to holiday someone decided to throw right into the middle of the week this week, it’s Thursday again. Time for another weekend!

This one happens to be the first Thursday of the month, and that means it’s time for an art walk and outdoor festival on the Fayetteville square. Tonight’s event is dog themed, and there will be a pet pageant, pet photo booth, and other festivities in addition to the regular First Thursday fun. Here’s more info.

Gulley Park Concert Series continues this week as well, with a performance by classic rock cover band Dead Horse Mountain Band set to take the gazebo stage on Thursday. More details are here.

Also in music, George’s has a show featuring country acts John Baumann and Charlie Shafter on Friday night, and Boston Mountain Playboys return to the stage on Saturday night. Tickets.

JJ’s Live has a Yacht Rock Revival show on Friday night, followed by Guns ‘N Roses tribute Nighttrain International on Saturday. Here’s ticket info.

There’s an electronic music festival at West End during the day finishing up at West & Watson late night headlined by Uzi b2b BIL and Ben Soundscape and Collette Warren. It’s called West Fest (get it?). Here’s the full lineup.

The Grove Comedy Club has some big names coming in this weekend, with performances by SNL alums Tim Meadows on Friday and Saturday, and Rob Schneider on Sunday.

Also up north, Bonnie Montgomery is back in town for a performance in the woods outside Crystal Bridges as part of their Forest Concert Series on Saturday.

There’s plenty more below. Go for it, we always say.
