» See more SOUND CHECK

The best one-stop shopping for local music this weekend is the Comerica CityFest, running through Sunday (July 8th)in Detroit’s New Center area. It’s the kind of event where you can just drop in and hear something good, but let us make a few recommendations: the Satin Peaches, 6:30 p.m. today on the Pure Detroit Stage; Anthony “Shake” Shakir, 4:30 p.m. Saturday on the Pure Detroit Stage; trumpeter Rayse Biggs, 7:30 and 9 p.m. Saturday on the Metro PCS Jazz & Blues Stage; The Go, 9 p.m. Saturday on the New Center Park Stage; the entire Pure stage lineup on Sunday, starting at 2:30 p.m. with God’s Army and running through the Singles, the Silent Years and the Hard Lessons; and the Detroit Soul and Blues Revue at 6 p.m. Sunday on the Metro PCS stage. For information, visit www.comerica cityfest.com.

A bit of post-Cityfest revelry takes place Sunday (July 8th) at Detroit’s Lager House, when the Hard Lessons, and Human Reunion bring the holiday weekend to a rocking close. The venue is at 1254 Michigan Ave., Detroit. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $5. Call (313) 961-4668 or visit www. lagerhousedetroit.com.

Ann Arbor singer-songwriter Dave Boutette will celebrate the release for his new album, “The Piccolo Heart,” over brunch from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday (July 8th) at the Steak Hut, 1551 W. Lafayette, Detroit. Call (313) 961-0659 or visit www.myspace.com/ daveboutettemusic.
