Feb. 13: Poor Man’s Whiskey at the Sebastopol Community Center


It wasn’t enough for the members of Poor Man’s Whiskey to cover “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It wasn’t enough to learn the entire 10 minutes of “Freebird.” No, the Santa Rosa string band finally reached their all-time novelty high by recording an entire bluegrass version of Pink Floyd’s opus, Dark Side of the Moon. With innovative arrangements and three-part harmonies, the Poor Man’s take on the classic album is more artistic than humorous, although this weekend they acknowledge two of the record’s most enduring spawns: laser-light shows and the dubious but entertaining connection to The Wizard of Oz. The venue will be decked out in Oz décor, the band members dressed like the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow, and revelers can experience multiple meta-levels of cultural onslaught under a haze of laser-kissed fog when Poor Man’s Whiskey performs Dark Side of the Moonshine in its entirety with an all-ages show on Saturday, Feb. 13, at the Sebastopol Community Center. 390 Morris St., Sebastopol. 8:15pm. $20–23. 707.823.1511.Gabe Meline
