This weekend: Jeff Buckley tribute and more

Posted By on Fri, May 14, 2010 at 2:31 PM

It's Friday and that means if I'm paying attention and I'm not too busy I tell you about some things that are going on this weekend that I might recommend even if I couldn't get them in the newspaper!

Chief amongst things that didn't make the paper this week is tomorrow night's show at the Rex Theatre, a Jeff Buckley tribute. Tribute shows seem a dime a dozen these days, but this one's Kind Of a Big Deal. And I'm not just saying that because my esteemed colleague, Aaron Jentzen, is performing.

Jeff Buckley: An Adulation, organized by local spoken word type Jason Kirin, features a number of local indie rock heavy hitters -- Justin Andrew, Ben Hardt, The Wreckids -- plus some big names from the international scene: David J of Bauhaus and Love & Rockets, Tommy Brunett, once of Modern English.

It's the premiere Jeff Buckley event of the moment, and Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert, will be present to say a few words. For a full lineup, check out the description on the Jeff Buckley website.

Elsewhere on the scene this weekend, local faves The Harlan Twins play at Howlers tonight with friends Nerd Parade, from Georgia. I will likely hit that one up.

And tonight at the BBT, Unholy Monkey Conspiracy unleashes its debut album along with ATS.

As always, for more choices check our online music listings, available whenever you want 'em!
