You wanna channel a rock god? Sure helps if you not only sound like the guy, but sorta look like him and play the hell out of the same mutant Fender Telecaster, which you just happened to build yourself. Bonus points if you’re from the same town, Freehold, New Jersey. Meet Irvine’s Josh Tanner, leader of Springsteen: The Premier Tribute to the Boss, featuring Clarence Clemons and Little Steven soundalikes. Also tearing up the stage are local favorites the Dave Silver Band—expect an “eclectic ‘60s to ‘90s, Beatles, Stones and Santana” blast from the past. A barbecue and beer garden benefits Camp Pendleton’s Afghanistan veterans, the 5th Marine Regiment. Go, close your eyes—you’ll be seeing E Street and Abbey Road.
