Los Lonely Boys

Saturday, September 17; the Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard)


It's been a year of highs and lows for twentysomething West Texas brothers Henry, JoJo and Ringo "Yes, I'm the drummer" Garza, otherwise known as the blues-pop trio Los Lonely Boys. The re-release of their self-titled debut album -- recorded back in 2003 with the help of admirer Willie Nelson -- has gone double-platinum, largely on the strength of the Grammy-winning radio smash, "Heaven." But on the downside, Ringo and his wife were arrested for pot possession in January (allegations of sexual assault made by two women visiting the couple's home that night are still being investigated). Still, the band is keeping its mind off its troubles by debuting songs from its upcoming album in concert -- which will doubtless contain Stevie Ray Vaughan/ Santana-style guitar heroics plus the rootsy rock & roll sound of Buddy Holly.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25; call 314-726-6161 for more information.
