Influenced and inspired by blues legends like Freddy King and Johnny "Guitar" Watson, for more than 40 years, Jimmie Vaughan has been the envy of many a fellow guitarist. He used to open for people like Jimi Hendrix and worked with icons including Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, B.B. King, and Carlos Santana. He's also, of course, the older brother of the late/great Stevie Ray and a founding member of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Those early T-birds albums are some of the most badass and influential blues-rock recordings from the past four decades. And we haven't even gotten to his solo stuff yet.
This Saturday night, Vaughan rolls into town with his Tilt-A-Whirl band in tow. Aside from anyone heading to Antone's in Austin anytime soon, those with a passing interest in seeing ridiculously talented blues musicians tear it up should catch this show. This is not only a show you don't say "no" to; you'll save the ticket stub.
