You've heard about the local music scene's revival so how about experiencing it in person this weekend?

Below are 58 shows to choose from, covering a wide range of genres. We're sure you'll find something to suit your music fancy, but just in case, here are our three recommendations:

  • Former "American Idol" finalist Faith Becnel brings her soulful sound to Red Stick Social, 1503 Government St., on Friday. Along with a lot of soul, she'll be giving the audience some blues and good ole rock 'n' roll, too. Her show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $10.
  • If alternative country's your thing, head for Nashville recording artist Morgan Tyler's 9 p.m. performance on Saturday at The Basin Music Hall, 336 3rd St. Tickets are $10.
  • Been wondering what dream pop is all about? Catch the band Riarosa at 8 p.m. Saturday at Mid City Ballroom, 136 S. Acadian Thruway. Karma & the Killjoys is the opening act. Tickets are $15.
