27 Club Tribute Show 

When: Sat., June 27, 8 p.m. 2015
Phone: 321-426-0187
Price: $10
Your 20s are hard, and doubly hard if you’re a rock & roll king or queen who’s expected to party and perform all the time. Some of them tend to burn brighter and faster than others, giving rise to the legendary “27 Club,” a surprisingly extensive group of superstars who died three years before the big 3-0. Tonight, a group of local musicians performs a tribute to the club’s members, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Amy Winehouse, with two or three songs from each of the dearly departed. Dave Zimlinghaus of Zap Dragon and the Attack is scheduled to perform a spot-on (if abbreviated) recreation of Nirvana’s Unplugged in NYC set, green cardigan and all. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen tributes to these musicians, but this show is unique in its attempt to pay tribute to all of these musicians. Costumes are encouraged, so if you’ve ever wanted to recreate Brian Jones’ “death by misadventure” à la Sunset Boulevard, tonight’s the night. – Thaddeus McCollum
