If you’re looking to pay respects to the late, great Kelly Holland – the former Cry of Love and Crush vocalist who was one of the best classic-rock frontmen this town has ever seen before his death last month – come on out to Sunday’s Memorial Celebration Concert happening in his honor at Raleigh’s Lincoln Theatre. The lineup includes Hank Sinatra, Wannabees, Skynyrd tribute band Tuesday’s Gone, and an all-star jam of Holland’s friends and peers from the local music community. Doors open at 5 p.m. Sunday. Suggested donation is $5, with proceeds earmarked for Holland’s teenage son, Elijah. See for details.
