1960s British Invasion cover band Jeffrey and the Pacemakers perform at the perfect Downtown spot for them Saturday night – the Cavern Club in the basement of the Brass Door. Lots of Beatles, Kinks, Animals, Donovan, and songs from other British bands of that era, as well as some American covers. Start time is 8 PM.
The Brass Door also has Amy LaVere in the Cavern tonight (8:30 PM, $5 cover) and Myla Smith tomorrow (4:30, main floor, no cover).

It takes a certain kind of personality to handle that 6 weeks on, 2 weeks off schedule, but you arrive back in town with your pocket full of money. Room and board are provided when on the boat, so there are very few expenses when working.
