Weekend Watch: The Deadstring Brothers and 500 Miles to Memphis

Saturday and Monday

The Nestor Tavern, 1001 NP Ave., may be on the western edge of downtown Fargo, but the bar gets a Western swing this weekend with a pair of touring bands. The Deadstring Brothers (pictured above) recall the country and blues swagger of vintage Rolling Stones, when the Detroit-based band plays Saturday night.

Another good fit for the Nestor’s gritty reputation will be 500 Miles to Memphis (pictured at right), when the cowpunks plug in Monday night for a balance of power punk, twang and swing. Both of these 21-and-older shows are $5. (701) 232-2485.
