Neil is the Real Deal


Two words: Neil Diamond.

On Saturday, Jan. 22, at Old Ironsides, more than 10 bands will do their best to pay homage to that latter-day crooner, the one, the only, Neil Diamond. With as diverse a line-up as you can find, you’re likely to hear “Sweet Caroline” belted out by a hardcore punk band, or “Coming To America” as a catchy ska number, or maybe “Solitary Man” with kazoos. Come out and pay tribute to an American legend and support local music. Neil Diamond’s 70th Birthday Tribute Show at Old Ironsides, 1901 10th St., Sacramento; 8 p.m.; $10
