Upcoming Events & News

CSNY in the clubs this year! 

CSNY

 

Tributosaurus has made a promise to ourselves that we would make time for this band at least once per year - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. This is one of our favorite artists to cover - cool grooves, psychedlic overtones, and of course the amazing harmonies. CSNY drew from some of the great bands of their time (Buffalo Springfield, The Hollies, and The Byrds) and formed what is truly a supergroup of American music, influencing not only music, but politics and popular culture.  The last several years we have done this show at festivals, but we thought it was time to bring it back to the clubs so you can hear all the exquisite detail of these gorgeous songs. 

We'll bring a nice long couple of sets to represent their epic career, and some of their solo works too...it's going to be a great night!

Tributosaurus Becomes R.E.M.  

 

Straight out of Athens Georgia came a shy little rock band with jangling guitars and a mumbling singer.  They rose through college radio, rode an indie music wave straight into the alternative explosion, and carried fame and success as far as they wanted.  Then, they went out on their own terms. 

Join us on Saturday, September 15th when we return to the North Suburbs at 210 Live, as Tributosaurus becomes REM. 

It’s always special to become a band that you cannot see on tour. 
Let’s reconstruct the fables.  Let’s begin the begin.  Let’s exhume McCarthy. Let’s lose our religion, give it away, and talk about the passion. 

We could do an entire night culling tracks from just the first 3 or 4 albums; and we’ll hit them plenty.  But we’ll also take you up through album 8; the near perfect “Automatic For The People.”  18 million record buyers can’t be wrong. 

Make the 80’s and 90’s version of yourself incredibly happy.  Be in the room for these songs again, delivered with the requisite Tributosaurus fervor and attention to detail.  Help us figure out what the hell Michael Stipe was saying on Murmur.  See you there. 

Tributosaurus Becomes R.E.M. 

Saturday, September 15th at 210 Live
210 Green Bay Road, Highwood, Illinois 60040
