Smokin' Joe Kubek and Bnois King

Hard-touring buddies Smokin' Joe Kubek and Bnois King make their annual appearance in Uptown, and you can expect a reliably good show, with Kubek tastefully injecting some incendiary rock licks into their modern blues. King's a soulful singer who plays great guitar himself, older-school in his approach. The band's 15th CD, "Road Dog's Life," is a mostly-original winner, with two surprising British Invasion-era covers -- The Rolling Stones' "Play With Fire," and The Beatles' "Don't Bother Me," given a very inventive and plaintive and successful ballad makeover.
