For Pete's Sake at the Camel 

Alongside Hank Williams and Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger is a patron saint of the modern singer and songwriter. With a passion for politics, the environment and equality echoing throughout his songs — most notably “We Shall Overcome” and “Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)” — Seeger helped authenticate folk music's standing in a time of social protest and upheaval. Honoring his 90th birthday (he's still up and around) the Camel hosts a series of performances to celebrate his contribution to music with a free-wheeling hootenanny on Sunday, May 3, 6-11 p.m., featuring performances by George Turman, Jackie Frost, Sheryl Warner and the Southside Homewreckers, Mark Campbell and Amy Ferebee. $10. 353-4901. — Mike Hilleary

    • The mural should stay as a reminder of how the DNC rigged their nomination process.
