ZZ Top @ The Paramount, 11/172013
Boogie blues legends ZZ Top wrapped up a fall tour earlier this month, including a few NY-area shows, with two nights at The Paramount in Long Island (11/16 & 11/17). At the 11/17 show, in addition to hits like "La Grange," "Tush" and "Sharp Dressed Man," the trio also covered Elvis' "Jailhouse Rock" and Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady." Pictures from that show are in this post, including ones of opening band The Slim Kings. Dig those tailpipe mike stands.
ZZ Top have some holiday shows lined up in the South and those dates are listed below. Meanwhile, frontman Billy Gibbons will be playing NYC at City Winery on December 18. The night is billed as "Billy Gibbons & Friends" and will feature Will Lee and Anton Fig (of David Letterman's house band) and others. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
