Had he not died on a toilet eating a peanut-butter-and-banana sandwich 35 years ago, Elvis Presley would have turned 78 on January 8 this year. He has been dead so long that 78 actually sounds kind of young; I doubt that I would have blinked if I was told he would have turned 100 this year. Nevertheless, because there are enough people still alive who are obsessed with the King, events celebrating his birthday persist. This weekend, there are two: one Friday at RecordBar, with impersonators Rich Vickers and Jeff Bergen, and one Saturday at Knuckleheads, with doppelgängers E-Rock, Frank Werth and Vickers.
Friday, January 4, at RecordBar, 7:30 pm, $12.
Saturday, January 5, at Knuckleheads Saloon, 7 p.m., $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
