Cover bands look and sound just like the real thing, unlike cover audiences, who are just used mannequins holding up lighters. See the real almost-real thing with this GrouponLive deal to see the San Diego Tributefest at Liberty Station. For $20, you get one general-admission ticket on Saturday, June 23, at 11 a.m. (a $40 value). The event lasts until 10 p.m. The first band takes the stage at noon, with every act playing an hour set followed by a 15-minute setup period for the next band.

Like a Lollapalooza stocked with spot-on impersonators, the inaugural San Diego Tributefest transforms the former naval training center of Liberty Station into a rock 'n' roll playground teeming with beer, food trucks, and performances by eight tribute bands. At noon, Stepping Feet jam out the spritely, fiddle-laced hits of the Dave Matthews Band. Ticket to Ride then takes the stage to reignite the epidemic of Beatlemania in their tribute to the Fab Four before dead-ringer Kenny Metcalf sparkles in Elton the Early Years, a flamboyant tribute to Elton John’s early '70s polyester heyday. The Journey Experience potently recreates the experience of seeing Journey, inspiring flocks of fans to reach for that “in the niiiiiiiight” high note in “Don’t Stop Believin’.” 5 p.m. sees the stage raided by The Police Experience. As praised by Stewart Copeland, the original drummer of The Police, the tribute band knows “every nuance, all the drum parts, and the singer has Sting down to a tee.”

The Parachutes, a Coldplay tribute band from Puerto Rico, prime the sun for sundown with Chris Martin's piano driven soul-tuggers such as “Yellow” and “Speed of Sound.” Sounding and looking like Freddie Mercury, right down to the iconic mustache and penchant for leather, Queen Nation salutes the seminal operatic rock band with theatrical epics such as “We Will Rock You” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The evening concludes with Hollywood U2, an extravagant salute to Bono and company hailed as “even better than the real thing” by the Santa Barbara Independent.
