For Pete's sake

. June 5, 2012.

I think it’s safe to say no folk musician has had a ride quite like Pete Seeger’s long and winding career. Fighting against civil injustice since the 1940s, he has spoke out against racism, environmental abuse and, actually, really anything he considered to be a violation of basic human rights. The 92-year-old, still politically active, Seeger has always been a man of the people. Now Ann Arbor will celebrate him with a tribute show for his birthday. For Pete’s Sake is a night of Seeger covers and singalongs from local admiring musicians such as Chris Buhalis, Gemini, Michael Hough, and Sally Potter. Just hope none of them decide to go electric, or old-school. Pete might sense it from New York and have a freak out. Just kidding, birthday boy. 8pm. $10. 316 S. Main St. www.theark.org.
