Leon Russell can write songs as well as his face can grow hair, really
​An impressive slate of shows roll through South Florida this weekend, and of them all, blues-rock legend Leon Russell is far and above the most photogenic of the bunch.

As our writer Lee Zimmerman says, "Leon Russell and the Abominable Snowman appear to have a lot in common. Both are legendary, and sightings of each are relatively rare." Read more about Russell's appearance at Culture Room (3045 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale) tonight here.

On Saturday night, Amos Lee brings his tasty, acoustic rock to Culture Room. Travis Newbill goes into more detail here.

Also on Saturday, Propaganda (Propaganda, 6 S. J St., Lake Worth) hosts

some searing riot grrrrl punk courtesy of  Angry Pudding. Abel Folgar

has more

on the night, also featuring the Dirty Boxes, the Come Ons, and the

Instant Whips.

Finally, Sunday night bring the Beach Boys and Full

House star John "Uncle Jesse" Stamos to Raymond Kravis Center for

the Performing Arts (701 Okeechobee Blvd.,

West Palm Beach). Christopher Lopez has the

deets.

For your viewing pleasure, check out Jesse and the Rippers tearing through "Forever" with a little help from the Beach Boys below.
