When a man feels blue because he caught his woman running around town with another dude, he'll probably punch a wall or pick a fight with a stranger. But Buddy Guy, well, he turned all those difficult emotions (that most men ignore by watching ESPN) into music. Buddy Guy removes all earthly pain by playing an electric guitar so sensual and shaking it sounds like he figured out a way to electrify earthquakesand he sings with a voice so soulful and idiosyncratic that hell take you to church, even if you dont want to meet Jesus. He is truly the Man. Don't miss this rare chance to come hear him tear the roof down at City National Grove. Remember, he is 75 after all.
