Remembering Bolan

County Wexford-born singer-songwriter Pierce Turner pictured last night with sound engineer Alexandria Wood ahead of his performance in the Marc Bolan-themed “20th Century Boy.” And the fun begins all over again tonight Monday (8 p.m.) at the City Winery, when Joe Hurley and co-host Edward Rogers take the stage at for the three-hour celebration of the life of the T. Rex front man, who died in a car accident 40 years ago. Suzanne Vega, Dublin rock guitarist Gerry Leonard, Donegal’s the Screaming Orphans and Rolan Bolan (who performed last night for first time in an extravaganza dedicated to his father) are among those in the all-star lineup. Doors open at 6 p.m.
