This weekend, the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank will host "Time and Time Again: A Celebration of Pat DiNizio", featuring tons of artists joining together to pay tribute to the singer/songwriter/guitar player/founder of The Smithereens.

They will be joined by Little Steven Van Zandt, Scandal vocalist Patty Smyth, Marshall Crenshaw, Ted Leo, Robin Wilson of The Gin Blossoms, Freedy Johnston, Richard Barone of The Bongos, Graham Maby, Peter Zaremba and Keith Streng of The Fleshtones, Bebe Buell, The Grip Weeds, Soraia, st John Jorgenson, Kenny Margolis of Cracker, producer Ed Stasium, Andy Burton, Kenny Howes and others.
Beyond those artists performing songs from across the entire Smithereens' catalog, there will also be a showing of a short film about the life of Pat DiNizio.
Tickets for this show were limited and sold out quickly, so by popular demand, the Basie will be live-streaming the entire concert. Things kick off Saturday January 13th at 8pm - you can watch the show on your phone or computer at THEBASIE.ORG.
