Here’s the bad news, University of Arizona students: School’s back in session on Monday, Aug. 21.
And now some good news: We found three concerts this weekend to help you close out summer 2017 and welcome fall.
On Thursday, Aug. 17, The Rock at 136 N. Park Ave. — within walking distance if you live in the dorms — is bringing a cast of deathcore metalheads for Albert The Cannibal’s Tiny Byrds Tour featuring Order 66 and Decayer. The all-ages show starts at 6 p.m., and the lineup includes Pretender To The Throne, Just Another Day and Sigils Of Summoning. It’s $8 in advance through The Rock (rocktucson.com), $10 at the door.
On Friday, Aug. 18, sing the blues with Chicago blues blaster John Grimaldi, aka Studebaker John, at 191 Toole, 191 E. Toole Ave., downtown. It’s a 21-and-older show so freshmen, sorry but you can’t get into this one. Tucson bluesmen Tom Walbank and Austin Counts open the show at 8 p.m. $12 in advance at ticketfly.com, $15 at the door.
Close out the weekend Saturday, Aug. 19, with a little Beatles-esq redux. Tucson’s own Tony Kishman dons his best Paul McCartney makeover for “Live and Let Die — A Tribute to Paul McCartney” at 7:30 p.m. at Fox Tucson Theatre, 17 W. Congress St. Kishman does a dead-on McCartney impression, channeling the former Beatle and solo rocker with some incredible nuance. $24-$44 through foxtucsontheatre.ticketforce.com
On Sunday, Aug. 20, you might want to turn in early. After all, it’s a school night.
