While the real Bono and friends are off promoting their latest album, playing surprise rooftop shows in London and spending an entire week as David Letterman's house band, Richmond's own U2 equivalent, Even Better Than the Real Thing, will set itself up for its own special outing, kicking off Sine's 10th Annual St. Patrick's Day celebration with Naughty Little Monkey. Will the band be able to master the new tunes off “No Line on the Horizon” in time for the show? Hear for yourself. The fun starts at noon on Friday, March 13, at SinAc, and continues Saturday, March 14, at 11:30 with the Havers, William Walter & Company, Naughty Little Monkey and Broken Monday. Free. 649-7767.— Mike Hilleary
