9/10 & 9/11: Traveling Wilburys Weekend

The Cover-Up Boston: Traveling Wilburys Weekend
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$10 advance / $12 door / 21+

Feat: Kingsley Flood (Bob Dylan), Jason Dunn (George Harrison), Spirit Kid (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Mercy James (Jeff Lynne), Brendan Boogie (Roy Orbison)

Even though it's a one-off gig, these guys put in the effort to really pay tribute to the music.

And they're taking it up a notch by having 5 groups performing as each of the Traveling Wilburys before they get together for a set of Wilbury madness.

I mean this is supposedly a rehearsal photo...

Aside from wigs et cetera, each artist has been matched really damn well with their tribute in my mind. I also read that live strings are part of the Jeff Lynne/ELO portion -- which is more than you could say about most ELO concerts...

It should be a fun night at my favorite dinky basement bar in the world (seriously). Kudos to SeƱor Boogie and his team for organizing these Cover-Up nights. This series is one of the best gigs in any month we get one.

They say the music will start promptly at 9pm.
