Undercover Presents: Nick Drake's 'Pink Moon' 

When: Sun., Jan. 22, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $15, $20

It might revolve solely on tributes, but the quarterly musical project UnderCover has a pretty exciting discography, including homages to Velvet Underground & Nico(under the direction of violinist Charith Premawardhana) and The Pixies' Doolittle (with bass clarinetist Aaron Novik at the helm). And now, trumpeter Darren Johnston has recruited a dozen ensembles to reinterpret Pink Moon, the album that went unnoticed after its 1971 release but later became a canonical gem. This iteration will feature reworkings by Balkan brass band Brass Mena┼żeri, saxophonist David Boyce, indie string group Ramon and Jessica, Johnston's own Broken Shadows Family Band (which he describes as "country-jazz"), singer Freddi Price of the soul revival group Lord Loves a Working Man, the Real Vocal String Quartet, and Jazz Mafia, among others. They premiere their work at Rickshaw Stop (155 Fell St., San Francisco) on Sunday, Jan. 22. 7:30 p.m., $15-$20.
