Tribute acts are still all the rage, but it’s not often you see family members of the artists themselves taking up the cause. Case in point: If you thought that Seals & Crofts — who have banded and disbanded numerous times over the years — were coming to town, you missed a tiny detail. No, that would be Seals & Crofts 2. At 7:30pm, head to the New Isis Theater (2401 N Main St, 817-808-6390) and hear hits like “Summer Breeze” and “Diamond Girl” performed by James Seals’ cousin Brady Seals and Darrell Crofts’ daughter Lua Crofts. There will be new songs, too, of course. Tickets are $34 at OutHouseTickets.com.
