The Weekly Plan-It: Nov. 9-Nov. 12

Highlights of the week ahead

Friday, Nov. 9

WDVX 15th Anniversary Concert

8 p.m. Bijou Theatre. $25.

Local public roots-music radio station WDVX celebrates 15 years on the air with Jim Lauderdale, Shawn Camp Band, Buddy Miller, Jay Clark, Robinella, and the Naughty Knots. Take a look at our cover story!

Saturday, Nov. 10

Fall Fairy House Festival

1 p.m.-4 p.m., Ijams Nature Center. $10.

Kids build habitats for imaginary woodland friends. C’mon, it’s fun!

Sunday, Nov. 11

Peelander-Z

8 p.m., Cider House (940 Blackstock Ave.). $5-$11.

Describing Peelander-Z as a Japanese psych/garage/punk band with members who dress up like Power Rangers seems like it should put a fine point on exactly what you can expect if you go see them. But it’s ultimately a noisy multimedia spectacle celebrating noisy guitars and colorful costumes.

Monday, Nov. 12

UT’s Writers in the Library: David Madden

7 p.m., UT Hodges Library auditorium. Free.

The Knoxville ex-pat author reads from his latest novel, London Bridge in Plague and Fire.
