Memorial Day weekend is upon us once again, which means it's time for BUBBAPALOOZA. The Star Bar's annual redneck rock 'n' roll and hillbilly punk throwdown fires up to raise funds for the family of founder Gregory Dean Smalley, who died from complications related to HIV several years back. Brace yourself for a weekend of performances from the Blacktop Rockets, Slim Chance & the Convicts, Dex Romweber Duo, Charlie Pickett and dozens of others. And don't forget, there's gonna be a whole mess of barbecue courtesy of Slope's in the vinyl lounge. $10-$15. Fri., 9 p.m.; Sat., 6 p.m. 437 Moreland Ave. www.starbaratlanta.com.
