Sons of Zevon: 1973 

When: Fri., July 8, 9:30 p.m. and Sat., July 9, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: Free
1973 was a pretty good year. Nixon suspended offensive combat in Vietnam, Foreman knocked out Frazier (technically) in Kingston, Bruce Springsteen made his debut as a recording artist, and LexisNexis was born, as were Chicago’s Sears Tower and endurance master David Blaine. And Pablo Picasso (artist) perished — making it an impressive 91 years without anyone ever calling him an asshole, at least according to Jonathan Richman. The soundtrack to such historical precedents was pretty boss as well. Among the bitchin’ jams were “Jean Genie,” “Ramblin’ Man,” “Bennie and the Jets,” “Jet,” “My Woman From Tokyo,” “Dancing Days” and “Raw Power.” Tonight, The Family Wash, for their Sons of Zevon series — an annual, sideman-studded tribute to a contiguously selected year in rock — will honor these songs and others of the era. An American band of Nashville needers-of-no-introduction Audley Freed (guitar), Reeves Gabrels (guitar), Jen Gunderman (keys), Marc Pisapia (drums), Kevin Hornback (bass) and Wash owner Jamie Rubin (guitar and vocals), as well as a slew of special guest vocalists will perform.
