Buddy Holly: The Concert

When: April 18-19, 8 p.m. 2013

Lamentably, illness prevented me from seeing Gary Busey, Oscar-nominated star of The Buddy Holly Story, when he was in Charlotte recently, though my interest had less to do with Buddy Holly and more to do with the fact that Busey is, well, kind of a freak. Those interested in a Buddy Holly impersonator for more Buddy Holly-related reasons might do well to make a pilgrimage to Sanford for this two-night concert event, with North Carolina's own Baxter Clement as the bespectacled one. Clement is also known for re-creating Johnny Cash; the boy gets around. The event also features Ryan Finley as Ritchie Valens and Michael Jones as the Big Bopper—who unlike plane-mates Holly and Valens, has not been immortalized with his own biopic. Injustice! —Zack Smith

Price: $25
