I have this game I like to play called “Guess That Cover Band.” Let’s try it. What ’80s metal band does Atomic Punks pay tribute to? Early Van Halen of course! How about Aja Vu? Without a doubt, you’re looking at a band that knows Steely Dan inside and out. For those who miss the days of trading tapes, eating burritos out of the back of a dirty VW van while “waiting on a miracle,” Dark Star Orchestra just might fill the void. These guys don’t just learn a couple of songs and call it a day; they recreate entire Dead shows, song for song. Want to hear the set list played on Feb. 2, 1971, at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, N.Y.? You got it. Pretend the Dead are still alive when Dark Star Orchestra jams through the Uptown Theatre on Sunday, Oct. 14. 1350 Third St., Napa. $30—$35. 6:30pm. 707.259.0333.
