TONITE: ‘Don’t Say That You Love Me’


The Lindsey Buckingham Appreciation Society perform Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk in its entirety


Mon., May 17, 8 p.m., $8, with Jennifer O’Connor, Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 877-435-9849,

CITY PAPER: In 1979, Fleetwood Mac followed up their gazillion-selling Rumours (1977) with the double-album Tusk.

The disjointed, off-kilter arrangements of the title track, “The Ledge” and others helped ensure the album’s overriding cult status. MORE

That dream becomes a reality Monday when the Lindsey Buckingham Appreciation Society takes the stage at Johnny Brenda’s. We talked to Berkery about Tusk, its influence, and the absence of irony in LBAS. MORE
