We’re set to swan dive into a weekend highlighted by our Friday night (August 16) Free Show with Weakened Friends at Dillon’s. But hey, the weekend does actually include some other days, so Morning Glory comes correct with a little weekend preview action we like to call Nighttime Glory.

This morning during the segment we touched on a few stellar options for live music around the Eastern end of Massachusetts, including tonight’s Beck, Cage The Elephant, Spoon, Sunflower Bean are at the XFinity Center in Mansfield; Saturday’s Back To The Mixtape 2 party at The Sinclair in Cambridge; and a pair of ace Allston gigs for Sunday in Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears at Great Scott and Darklands and more at O’Brien’s Pub.

Hit the Morning Glory pod for everything we touched on.
