This week's entertainment picks: The Weeknd, Rory Erickson

It's a solid week for concerts in our fair city.  There's lots to check out, so I've narrowed my picks down to:

The Weeknd, Sound Academy, Nov 2, 3 & 4
The not-quite-so-mysterious-anymore The Weeknd and his fusion of hip hop, R&B, and samples may be one of the few acts that can make the Sound Academy sound like a decent venue.

Rory Erickson, Lee's Palace, Nov 3
It's not often we get Erickson, founding member of the 13th Floor Elevators and certified musical wingnut/genius coming through town.  So take advantage.
