This Weekend’s Concerts, From Curren$y to Jimmy Buffett


On Sunday night, perpetual party animal Jimmy Buffett played a free concert in Gulf Shores, Alabama, in the name of helping those affected by the BP spill get through their tough times (those affected by the BP spill who are not fans of "Cheeseburger in Paradise" were presumably grateful for the local-economy-boosting business the Buffett show managed to pull in). Good job, Jimmy! Elsewhere across the country, stages were rocked in less altruistic, but no less exciting, manners.
