Considering that Morrissey has routinely turned down six-figure offers to reunite the band that made him famous, you will probably never get to see the Smiths. Or Siouxsie and the Banshees. Or Depeche Mode. Well, maybe Depeche Mode. But even if you do finally manage to catch a glimpse of one of these — your all-time favorite got-me-through-high-school bands — rest assured it will be from the upper deck of a 10,000 seat arena. Thankfully, tribute acts such as This Charming Band and Spellbound have perfected the art of providing the performance you always hoped you could experience, and at a fraction of the cost.

Slim's says…

Since 2005, San Francisco's This Charming Band has performed the songs that saved your life for thousands of Smiths fans across the country, selling out venues all over the West Coast. We strive to make each show a celebration of unity in the love and appreciation of the music of The Smiths. It's not our music, it's all of our music, and as a band of super fans like you, we aim to perform it as respectfully and accurately as possible — while doing our best to recreate the energy of those legendary live Smiths performances that we sadly can't get anymore.
