Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Cover Night

Every year, Andrew McKeag, guitarist for Presidents of the United States, puts together a holiday benefit show that pays tribute to one of music history's most well-loved albums. This year, that album is Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, a record widely considered to be the very best release sired by Sir Elton John. As is meet for such a revered artist, the album will be performed in its entirety and in order; unlike watching a tribute band, though, this evening takes a round-robin approach, in which every participating band gets to play just one song. Proceeds from the evening benefit Musicares, an organization that provides assistance to musicians in times of financial need. SARA BRICKNER
