Gray isn't the only one who will be belting out the hits, as aging alt-rockers Third Eye Blind will offer a gratis gig on Saturday, while a number of Valley bands and musicians will perform at various times throughout the weekend.

Joe Sib at Trunk Space (Thursday):
Turns out Henry Rollins ain't the only aging punk icon bloviating behind a mic about his past, as former Wax/22 Jacks frontman (and founder of Side One Dummy Records) Joe Sib has been touring the country with his "California Calling" spoken word show. He's hitting the Trunk Space later tonight and will fill the Grand Avenue gallery with punk rock tales and stories about how he helped discover Gogol Bordello and The Gaslight Anthem. 8 p.m., $8. (1506 Grand Ave.)
Phoenix Boys Choir at Steele Indian School Park (Thursday):
The venerated Valley vocal group presents sneak peaks of the upcoming season, as well as other special selections during this special hour-long concert. 5:30 p.m., $10. (300 E. Indian School Rd.)
2 Tone Lizard Kings at 910 Live (Friday):
"The band will be playing a ton of new tracks as well as older fan favorites, and the show gets even more rasta love with support from Dr. Skavra 2 Tone Collective, Three Point Turn, Sara McAllister and Liam and the Ladies. That's enough island rhythm to keep you skanking all night..." (read more) 7 p.m., $5. (910 N. McClintock Drive, Tempe) -- Nicki Escudero
Jägermeister Buried Alive Metal Fest at Goat Head Saloon (Friday):
Spend an evening downing shot of the licorice-like liqueur while the hard-charging hard rockers of Rowan, Lustmord, 69 Sins, Phoenix and Dragon, Losing God, and other local bands attempt to destroy your eardrums. 8 p.m., $5. (1423 S. Country Club Dr., Mesa)
Live Wire, Ravones, Last in Line at Rogue Bar (Friday):
Mock 'n' roll reigns supreme at the Rogue as a trio of local tribute acts offer serious send-ups to the rock stars of yesteryear. For instance, the songs of Motley Crue will be feted by the members of Live Wire, while The Ravones honor the music of the Ramones (natch), and Last in Line imitates the late great Ronnie James Dio. 8 p.m., $5. (423 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale)
