This weekend on a shoestring

Though today is, indeed, April Fool’s Day, the following round up is no joke. A weekend’s worths of music; no cover charge over $5.

Friday, April 3

• Indiana-based Lovely Houses (this is the singer/songwriter’s name, just to clear up any confusion) plays for tips at Firestorm Cafe (48 Commerce St., Asheville, 255-8115). Sweet, soulful and surprisingly swingy folk-pop at 8 p.m.
