The Week’s Complete Concert Calendar: Feb 22-27

This week's highlights: A locally sourced Neil Young tribute band, a critically acclaimed Canadian chamber folkie, and a fake-baby-having former One Direction member.

The Weather Station is at the Turf Club on Wednesday.
Jeff Bierk

OK, to be more accurate, Louis Tomlinson’s fake baby would now be a fake six-year-old. The Neil Young tribute act? Tired Eyes, featuring Alan Sparhawk, Rich and Glen Mattson, and Kraig Johnson. And the critic’s fave (though not this critic’s fave) is ballyhooed Hejira-era Joni channeler Tamara Lindeman of the Weather Station.
