Eight Gigs: The Yardbirds

Wed., July 27, 7:30 p.m., Crest Theatre, $30-$45

English blues-rock band the Yardbirds are best known for their song “For Your Love,” which hit radio waves during the 1960s. Now, the more than 50-year-old flock will perform tunes that cemented their reputation as one of the most influential groups throughout music history. Famous original members of the Yardbirds include: Keith Relf, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. With the band’s latest tour, the only original Yardbird on board is drummer Jim McCarty, along with an otherwise entirely American group of musicians who grew up with the Yardbirds’ music. 1013 K Street, www.theyardbirds.com.
