CAROLE KING/TAPESTRY TRIBUTE
Sunday (June 24), 9 pm, at the Boat (158 Augusta)
Not officially a Pride event, this smart and diverse tribute to Carole King's iconic Tapestry album features two members of former T. O. post-Riot Grrrl crew Galaxy (Katie Stelmanis and Emma McKenna) covering classic songs that are probably better than anything else you'll hear at Pride. Just sayin'.
