Countdown to The Great Cover-Up!



Friends, only four days until the most awesome music-for-charity event in Tucson!

That's right, The Great Cover-Up begins on Thursday, Dec. 13, at Plush; continues at Club Congress on the night of Friday, Dec.14, and during the day on Saturday, Dec. 15, at Hotel Congress' outdoor patio; and finishes up that night, Saturday, Dec. 15, at the Rialto Theatre.

Over the course of the event, 50 local acts will each perform 20-minute set of better-known national and international acts — and every penny of the proceeds will be donated to TAMHA (Tucson Artists and Musicians Healthcare Alliance).

In order to get you into the Cover-Up spirit, each day this week we'll be posting a cover song by one of the acts getting covered at this week's event.

If that's confusing, here, enjoy Amy Winehouse (whose songs will be performed on Thursday at Plush by a local act — we won't tell you which one, as it's a Cover-Up tradition to not divulge beforehand who will be covering whom) performing a song originally recorded by The Zutons.

A full schedule of events is after the jump.

Thursday, December 13th at Plush (Doors at 6:00pm)
Friday, December 14th at Congress (Doors at 6:00pm)
Saturday, December 15th at Congress from NOON to 5:00pm
