Music notes: A Bee Gees tribute at the Metropolis

text size: AAA

Recovered from your New Year's Eve activities yet? This is typically a slow time of year for live music and album releases, but a few things of note are on the horizon.

Start struttin'
If you're a fan of the 1970s, chances are you like the Bee Gees. The British band was a keystone of the disco era, delivering funky dance-floor anthems highlighted by the delicious falsetto vocal harmonies of Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. You can relive those songs and those polyester days at "Stayin' Alive: A Tribute to the Bee Gees," a tribute show that will strut into the suburbs this weekend.
8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre, 111 W. Campbell St., Arlington Heights. Tickets start at $35. Go to metropolisarts.com.
