Esther
There are not a ton of shows locally this weekend, but out of the ones below, I have heard great things about Esther Moore.

If you want to go chill with a warm yummy coffee beverage and hear some great acoustic music then check out Esther Moore and Blake Gardner at Coffee On Broadway Friday!

Also, Coffee On Broadway is a great place to hang in general and they don't charge for Wifi, so go early and hang out for awhile.
