Howe Gelb has represented the Old Pueblo in venues around the world as the man behind Giant Sand among other incarnations. 

His 60th birthday party this Saturday at the Rialto Theater comes on the heels of his announcement earlier this year that Giant Sand was ending.

John Doe, Exene Cervenka and Scout Niblett will help with the revelry. 

The concert starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 through the Rialto website
