Leon Russell and Riley Etheridge Jr.

After two appearances at the swanky Dakota, Rock Hall of Famer Leon Russell takes his distinctive blend of gospel/blues/rock to the funky ol’ West Bank. The 72-year-old with the seemingly gerry-rigged keyboard setup will play favorites by the Beatles, Stones and Dylan (he was a session player on countless famous records) as well as such essential Russell records as “Delta Lady,” “Tight Rope” and “A Song for You.” Bring your earplugs. Louisiana-reared, New York-based Americana singer Riley Etheridge Jr. opens. Jon Bream
