Music is all around us—in the wind, the rain, and the weird sounds that children make. Listen to something that's actually been rehearsed with this GrouponLive deal to Jack FM's Throwback Tribute Spectacular at Gexa Energy Pavilion. For $6, you get one G-Pass to the general-admission lawn for Saturday, May 11, at 5 p.m. (up to a $12 value). Doors open at 4 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Jack FM's Throwback Tribute Spectacular treats fans to the dulcet notes of 15 cover bands playing on a stage of time-traveling musicality. The event launches into the realm of classic tunes with a boost by Who’s Bad, an octet of Jacksonites whose vocal, instrumental, and dance skills channel the King of Pop’s entire oeuvre. Depeche Mode tributeers Strangelove keep heads bobbing, buttressing each song with 60–100 hours of backtrack recordings to faithfully recreate the sonics of their inspiration. Then the Red Not Chili Peppers bring a bit of California to Texas, with mohawked Remy Fischer as Kiedis and Jonny Savage playing the role of Flea. Praised by Examiner.com for its ability to persuade fans to "fist bump their way back in time," AC/DC–mimicking act Back in Black punctuates the evening by precisely recreating the hard-rocking Australian band’s soaring sound and refusal to take sides in the 19th century War of Currents.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
