Weekend watch: Har Mar Superstar
While he was just here in December, Twin Cities-reared R&B singer Har Mar Superstar has something new in his always-entertaining bag of tricks when he plays The Aquarium, 226 Broadway, Fargo, on Saturday night.
Har Mar (Sean Tillman) is touring behind last month’s “Bye Bye 17,” released on Strokes’ singer Julian Casablancas’ label. There’s another Strokes tie-in, with the group’s drummer (and sometime Har Mar beat-keeper) Fabrizio Moretti featured on “Prisoner.” While his look and shtick is laughable, his voice and performance always deliver the gold, which is why he was cast in last year’s “Pitch Perfect.”
Birthday Suits (the Minneapolis noise rockers, not a reference to Har Mar’s on-stage stripping) and Still Pacific open this ID-only show at 10 p.m. with an $8 cover. (701) 235-5913.
