You never got to see The Smiths in their heyday, and you missed Morrissey at Coachella in ’09. Heaven knows you’re miserable now. But don’t panic. The Moz turns 52 this Sunday, and you can dance alone in your underwear to “This Charming Man,” or head to Slim’s Friday night and celebrate with a bunch of other Smiths fans.
SF-based This Charming Band have been doing the Smiths tribute thing since 2005, and every year they perform a special Morrissey’s Birthday set at Slim’s. This year’s bill also includes Depeche Mode tribute For The Masses and Duran Duran tribute Sing Blue Silver. You can get your full 80s fix in one go.
Tickets are $15. Doors are at 8pm and the show starts at 9pm. More info.
