"Though Leon Redbone's iconic guise of white fedora, jacket and sunglasses has been thoroughly satirized (anybody remember the “Leon Redbone workout” Far Side cartoon?), it’s easy to overlook what a genuinely gifted artist he remains — a role he inevitably tries to downplay," says press for Redbone's Saturday, May performance at The Altamont Theatre. The singer and guitarist specializes in interpretations of early 20th-century music, like jazz, blues and Tin Pan Alley classics. He's released more than a dozen albums and created music for TV and film, including a duet of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" with Zooey Deschanel for Elf. 8 p.m. $25/$30. http://myaltamont.com.
