Thank the gods for the weekend, and there is definitely some stuff to do out there on this one. Here's the run-down. ...

Open mics are always a good way to start the night. They're usually early and cheap. After the open mic, there is still plenty of time to go do something else. Tonight at 7 p.m., the Colored Women's Club hosts its monthly Free Ya Mind open mic run by Stella Haioulani. Haioulani is basically the godqueen of open mics in Tacoma. Without her, there would not even be a spoken word poetry scene here. To feature or perform at this open mic, call 253.921.1160 or email freeyamind365@gmail.com.

Later tonight, go see Rubberband Sav, Slap Boys and more open for Oakland, Calif.'s, Keak Da Sneak in Kent at Jimmy T's Sports Bar and Grill. The tickets are $15 and the show starts at 9 p.m.

Moving onto Saturday ... The Breaklites has a free show at the University of Puget Sound. This show is all-ages, 9 p.m., at Club Rendezvous in the Sub next to the Cellar. The show is brought to you by 90.1 KUPS, which you all should be tuning into for the radio station's hip-hop shows.

Also on Saturday, is the third Fresh Blends Reblended. These 9 p.m. shows are at The Loch's in downtown Tacoma. Thankfully and smartly, DJ Reign has dropped the cover from a whopping $10 to a normal and sane $5. This bill features Todd Sykes, DJ Hanibal and others. Currently, Todd is killing ish with his new album with Ra Scion, where he handles all the production.

If ya want to hit the road Saturday, get out of town and head up to Seattle; go to the Vermillian Art Gallery at 9:30 p.m., where you can hear Influential Minds, Controversy, Tim-Me, DJ Skrewball and others. This show is also only $5.

Lastly, the Graffiti Garage MC Cypher is now at 1:30 p.m. along Tacoma's Antique Row. So, I'll see ya'll there!
