Sat, Aug 7, Beach Boys tribute show
Old Ironsides, 8 p.m., $7
Sacramento, CA 95814
For as long as concertgoers can remember, Jerry Perry has hosted tribute shows. Whether at Old Ironsides or the now-defunct Cattle Club, his shows always feature a veritable who’s who of the Sacramento music scene honoring Prince, David Bowie, Dolly Parton or dead rock stars. Now, it’s time for the Beach Boys tribute show featuring Baby Grand, Dog Party (pictured), Life in 24 Frames and more. While some sets by our beloved, local bands often seem unrehearsed or unnecessarily hurried, there are always a few that manage to turn heads with their interpretation. Any guesses as to which band will attempt “The Warmth of the Sun”? 1901 10th Street, www.myspace.com/alivekicking.
