One of the much-cherished perks of my job is that it often affords me opportunities to see live music that I would not otherwise have if I’d chosen a different line of work. As such, I am occasionally moved to attend a concert or a show out of sheer curiosity rather than established fandom.
Such was the case when the Zombies paid a visit to the Mount Baker Theatre a couple of years ago. I was, of course, familiar with the ‘60s-era rock band via hits like “She’s Not There,” “Tell Her No,” and “Time of the Season,” but I cannot say that I was an avowed fan.

The Zombies play Aug. 31 at the Silver Reef Casino, Haxton Way at Slater Road. Tickets are $29.50 and info can be had at http://www.silverreefcasino.com

The Midtown Men
The sounds of the ’60s
Let’s face it: Cover bands or tribute bands or whatever you’d like to call them, are a dime a dozen. Some of them are great—and therefore exceedingly entertaining. Some of them are terrible—also entertaining, just in a different way. But they’re all parts of the same musical…
