Eight Gigs: The Brodys
Fri., May 22, 9 p.m., Old Ironsides, $10
Ah, the Brodys: a staple at Concerts in the Park for a whopping 18 years, but—somehow, for some reason—no longer. The pop-rockers aged, and so did their loyal fans, but who doesn't crave the excuse to belt out “I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)” in a mass of sweaty people every so often? Karaoke just won't do it—the Brodys always win in energy and spirit. Since you can't get your free fix at Cesar Chavez Plaza this year, head to the Brodys' 20th anniversary party, where the band just might unveil some new tunes. Get there early to catch the Knockoffs opening. 1901 10th Street, www.facebook.com/thebrodys.
