The George Harrison Birthday Tribute Concert will be hosted on Saturday night by Ellis Clark and The Big Parade with guest Ary Paloma Jeebie from the garage/rockabilly band Amazing Heeby Jeebies. A founding member of Epicycle and Social Act, Clark is also a solo recording artist and producer.
Other performers include Mars Williams from The Psychedelic Furs; Carla Prather of Poi Dog Pondering; and singer guitarist Phil Angotti, who’s on the verge of releasing his latest solo effort. The Handcuffs, the coed indie band that’s led by vocalist-guitarist Chloe F. Orwell and drummer Brad Elvis (and once included Clark as a member), will also be on hand. Some of the other bands are Social Act, Aethereal, Rachel Drew, and The Polkaholics. There will also be a Silent Art Auction.
See the George Harrison Birthday Tribute Concert Facebook page for a full list of the performers. Admission is $12 at the door, and proceeds will go to The Material World Charitable Foundation, which was founded by George Harrison in 1973.
