Expect a tidal surge of deep, heartfelt blues at this tribute to the local harmonica paragon Lynwood Slim, who died after suffering a stroke a few weeks back. Featuring a slew of pals and first-rate blues busters, including veteran Texas funk ruler King Cotton, a certifiable wild man who has been flipping wigs since he fronted get-around Texas rock band Navasota in 1969; the soulful fretwork of Rick Holmstrom, who stays pretty busy as Mavis Staples' bandleader; reliably righteous honky-tonk idol James Intveld; the formidable, hard-swinging LBC blues shamans Mighty Mojo Prophets; plus the very able likes of Kid Ramos, Kirk Fletcher, Junior Watson and many others. Nonstop, wall-to-wall, bittersweet but beautiful music.

Sun., Sept. 14, 12-8 p.m., 2014
