TAMPA - Rockin' in the Free World: A Tribute to Neil Young." is a nine-hour performance of the classic songs of Neil Young by a diverse array of more than 30 bands and solo performers at Skipper's Smokehouse on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2 p.m. to midnight.

All the bands and solo performers will present their unique interpretations of the music made famous by Young. Young is a pioneer of several musical genres. He helped create the 60s' California folk rock scene with his bandmates in Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills Nash & Young. Through his permeations of country, rockabilly, blues, heavy metal and other styles, his raw emotional writing and composing is always recognizable. Called The Godfather of Grunge among other titles, Young remains a singularly fresh visionary spanning generations and genres. This event is an early celebration of his 60th birthday.

In addition to the 20 bands performing an array of Neil Young hits, 11 solo performers will re-create Neil Young's classic album, "After the Gold Rush," which includes songs such as "Tell Me Why" and "Southern Man," from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Tickets to Rockin' in the Free World are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. For tickets, call (813) 238-8001 or visit www.wmnf.org. Children 12 and under will be admitted free.

Doors open at 2 p.m. Skipper's is at 910 Skipper Road in north Tampa. Call (813) 971-0666 or visit www.skipperssmokehouse.com.
