Run for Cover
There is plenty of great music in town on Saturday night, from the sold-out Sleater-Kinney show at the 9:30 Club to Odetta at Blues Alley. But if you're looking for flat-out fun, the place to be is the Black Cat, which will host the fourth installment of Run for Cover. For those unfamiliar with the concept, it's pretty simple. Local musicians form temporary supergroups perform short sets that pay tribute to/parody some of their favorite bands. While there's certainly a joke-y element to the proceedings, don't expect many half-hearted performances. All of the participants get seriously into it.
The unconfirmed but very likely list of bands is as follows, with our best guess as to the act they're saluting in parentheses:
Fun House (The Stooges)
Just Oates (Hall and Oates)
The Carlisle Group (The Go-Go's)
Girls on Film (Duran Duran)
Another Man's Sac (Butthole Surfers)
The Queen Is Dead (The Smiths)
The Sandanistas (The Clash)
The Wood Sprites
We're stumped on the last two. Fritz is guessing Pat Benatar for the Invinceables. Anyone out there have any ideas?
