Monday, December 31, 2012

Guy kicks off residency: There's no better way to jumpstart the 2013 concert season than a trip to Chicago's south side for Buddy Guy's annual residency at his personally curated club. While it's always a privilege to see the 76-year-old trailblazer in any environment, there's no place like home, as mirrored by the fact that the guitar slinger's brand new CD is fittingly titled "Live At Legends." Thursday, January 3-Sunday, January 6 at Buddy Guy's Legends: www.buddyguy.com.

Otis Clay Otis Clay Otis Clay Otis Clay Otis Clay

More blues with Clay: Following in the footsteps of Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Solomon Burke, Otis Clay is more than merely a local legend, but truly a national treasure. Catch the bluesy soul man up close and personal at this record release party for his brand new "Truth Is" project, alongside genre staples dating back to the mid-1960s. Saturday, January 5 at SPACE: www.evanstonspace.com.

William Shatner William Shatner William Shatner William Shatner William Shatner

Some William Shatner surprises: With more than 60 years of acting (and even some singing) experience under his belt, William Shatner certainly has plenty of tales to tell. In this touring rendition of his one man Broadway show, the "Star Trek" superhero is set to deliver behind the scenes stories, photos and videos spanning his illustrious entertaining history. Friday, January 4 at Paramount Theatre: www.paramountaurora.com.


Music sounds better when you're lounging on a Comfy Supersac!
