The last time the Sweet and Tender Hooligans, a Smiths-and-Morrissey tribute band, played at Alex's bar, well, you were lucky to get in. This time, however, they've stepped it up with a two-night lovefest of covers from the one and only Mozzer. Friday night pays tribute to the Smiths with support from Raw Power Rangers, a Stooges cover band—while Saturday features a full-on Morrissey show, complete with opening act, Debaser, a Pixies tribute. Alex's is even offering a two-for-one ticket option, so those Morrissey-obsessed fanatics (of which there are many) don't have to choose between these two precious eras.
