Parrotheads take moveable beach bash from Cricket to Westgate

It’s official. Jimmy Buffett’s in league with the Devil.

How else to explain how a dude can milk a four-decade career out of a beach-bum shtick and a couple of decent songs from 1974? Or, worse, how the same marginally talented bum, er, dude can put the capper on the whole affair by selling out sanctified spaces like Fenway Park and Wrigley Field?

Buffett’s burgeoning flock of Parrotheads will surely take a less jaded view, and will likely flock en masse to the free screening of Jimmy Buffett Live at Wrigley Field. The 2006 concert film, which starts less than 24 hours after the last strains of Buffett’s middling guitar fade from his show at nearby Cricket Wireless Pavilion, begins at 8 p.m. in conjunction with Westgate’s WaterDance Film Festival.
