Ex-Stone hits Senator

Mick Taylor, The Senator Theater, Monday, Aug. 6 • 9 p.m.

What’re you doin’ Monday night, Aug. 6? Howzabout taking in the fabulous blues guitar playing of a music legend? Yep. Former member of John Mayall’s Blues Breakers and ex-Rolling Stone Mick Taylor (pictured) brings his great band to our fair burg for a one-night only foray into the blues and more! On a personal note (ha-ha), I learned my first slide guitar solo listening to Taylor play “Love In Vain,” on the epochal Stones’ ‘69 live album, Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! Maybe some of you did, too. Opening for the Brit-whiz is Chico’s currently white-hot group, those mavens of country ravings, The Asskickers! Tickets are available in advance from Melody Records and Lulu’s Fashion Lounge for $13; $15 at the door. This all ages event is presented by The Right Now Foundation and happens at The Senator Theater, 517 Main St. More information: 894-8621.
