Garage-rock godfathers ? and the Mysterians - five Mexican-Americans from Saginaw who will be forever remembered for "96 Tears" - play a free show tonight in James Park as part of Evanston's Starlight Concerts (there are some good acts coming up, too: Allá, Bird Names, the Eternals, and Mucca Pazza, among others).
In 1997, J.R. Jones profiled ? and the Mysterians; it's a fascinating story.
