Vince Mira at Can Can

Can Can's Sun Records Revival is an ode to the classics—Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, all the great musicians who got their start at the famous Memphis studio—and local teenager Vince Mira is the perfect talent to perform such beloved songs. At first he's just a baby-faced kid—he can't be older than 16, and his acoustic guitar looks big against his slight frame. But when that kid opens his mouth, it's unreal. Mira sings Cash's classics with an eerily exact replica of Cash's whiskey-tinged baritone. The shock is what pulls the crowd in, but his charisma and talent is what keeps 'em coming back. (Can Can, 94 Pike St, 652-0832. 8 pm, free, 21+.)
