To help you get the most out of your weekend, we've enlisted the live-event expertise of the editors of Thrillist, a daily e-mail newsletter that highlights the best goings-on in 21 cities across the United States. From Dallas beer tastings and Miami food festivals to Seattle book readings and San Francisco obstacle races, Thrillist curates its Friday-Saturday-Sunday listings every seven days in its Playbook section. We've picked six of our favorite upcoming events from this week's Thrillist editions.
Los Angeles: World's Greatest Tribute Bands
This ongoing series of free shows at the Roxy (which's being broadcast live on AXS TV) is devoted to performers who basically are their idols, and it was totally sold out 'til today, when they unleashed 150 tix to each show for Thrillist readers, meaning you can sign up now to see Wild Child play The Doors and the Hollywood U2 play, um, like The Cranberries or something?
World's Greatest Tribute Bands: Mon. April 8, 8 p.m.; 9009 W Sunset Blvd., 310-276-2222.
