Mookie Blaylock

Troy Riverfront Park, Wednesday


No, the retired Atlanta Hawks point guard isn’t coming to Troy. Mookie Blaylock was Pearl Jam’s original name. And, no, Pearl Jam aren’t coming to Troy either (maybe in a couple more years). Mookie Blaylock are a Pearl Jam tribute band who will rock out Riverfront Amphitheater with all your favorite grunge-rock songs. The Niagra Falls-based band have been playing Pearl Jam covers since 1995, so they have a little credibility when it comes to 1990s rock and grunge in particular. Opening for them will be Sly Fox and the Hustlers. (Aug. 21, 5 PM,  free, River Street, Troy, 279-7997)
