Numbers Band founder Robert Kidney celebrates his 60th birthday this weekend. The frontman has been leading the blues-rock juggernaut for over 35 years now, since back when the band's hometown of Kent was in the news for all the wrong reasons. But by all accounts, he just keeps getting better. Over a half-dozen Numbers alums will join the band for some rarely heard nuggets, including "About the Eye Game," "Who Do You Love?," and "Jimmy Bell." Expect a long set with appearances by Tin Huey/the Waitresses' Chris Butler, Chi-Pig's Debbie Smith, Pere Ubu/Home and Garden drummer Scott Krause, and longtime sit-in player Mike Bubnow. "We're going to play as long as they'll let us," promises Kidney, then adds, "As long as people are there." That means you.
