Tonight in live music; Turnover with Elvis Depressedly, The Sh-Booms, Ghost Eagle and more


✔️   = Critic's Pick

✔️  Stardust Memories W/Talk to Mark and Donna Lu Skipper’s is the place for tribute shows this week (a Led Zeppelin and Meters night happens on Friday, and “Lynette Skynyrd” plays on Wednesday), but this one tackling the Thin White Duke is probably the best of the nostalgic nights thanks to the addition of two of the better Bay area rock acts gigging right now — Talk to Mark and Donna Lu. (Skipper’s Smokehouse, Tampa) INFO 

Eye Ball Gala w/Ravi Drums Chamberlain High grad Ravi Jakhotia (aka Ravi Drums) made the controversial decision to play Trump’s inauguration, but he shoots for absolution of his sins with this charity gig, where he’ll use his fame (Ravi was the house DJ at the Playboy Mansion and MTV’s Video Music Awards and has performed at the Super Bowl) to raise money for the Lion’s Eye Institute, which provides funds for underprivileged patients to get life-changing corneal surgery. A gala kicks off the evening, but doors for the concert open at 9 p.m. for anyone that doesn’t want to spend a mortgage payment on VIP tickets. More information is at (T.

✔️  Turnover w/Elvis Depressedly/Emma Ruth Rundle Matthew Lee Cothran and Delaney Mills’ lo-fi indie rock project Elvis Depressedly takes second billing at this show, but hearing cuts from the band’s hazy, yet cutting 2016 album California Dreamin’ come to life before Turnover — A Virginia Beach trio touring in support of a band new LP of lovelorn dream-pop, Good Nature — takes the stage should make for a more-than-fine Saturday night.
