Our music section here at the Observer tends to ignore (if not openly mock) cover bands, aside from enjoying the semi-ironic tribute acts that crop up every Halloween. But really, is yet another terrible "original" band that's a blatant rip-off of, say, Radiohead or Wilco more inherently valuable than an honest tribute act? Find out after the horse races at "Party at the Park" with renowned Elvis impersonator Kraig Parker from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday at Lone Star Park, 1000 Lone Star Parkway, Grand Prairie. Grandstand admission is $5. Visit lonestarpark.com.
