Edie Sedgwick 

No, not that one. The Andy Warhol arm candy and New York City '60s-art-scene icon famously succumbed to drug addiction in 1971, but popular culture hasn't forgotten her. With a legacy spanning four decades, Sedgwick has been referenced in memoriam on songs by artists ranging from Bob Dylan and the Velvet Underground to Lloyd Cole and the Long Blondes. Perhaps most dubious of Sedgwick tributes is the one that bears her name. Justin Moyer is Edie, sort of. The ex-El Guapo/Supersystem bassist " when not making normal music with the Washington, D.C., rock band Antelope " drags himself up to look nothing like his attractive namesake, cranks his iPod to 11 and belts out half-annoying, half-hilarious electroclash numbers named after other pop archetypes. To wit: 'Martin Sheen," from 2005's Her Love is Real But She is Not (DeSoto), sounds like TV On The Radio sung by a tone-deaf mental patient. Normally, this kind of erratic behavior might call for an intervention. To Moyer, apparently, it called for a national tour. Former Fugazi bassist Joe Lally opens. The show is a benefit for Kingsley House. Tickets $5. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
