George Thorogood

George Thorogood is stuck in the past, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Thorogood and his Delaware Destroyers blazed through 35 years of hits in more than 90 minutes at Texas Station’s Dallas Events Center on April 30, with the singer/guitarist paying his three-chord respects to inspirations such as Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker and Bo Diddley throughout. Thorogood gave the middle-aged crowd what they came for: He performed originals such as “I Drink Alone,” “Bad to the Bone” and “You Talk Too Much,” while also delivering his classic covers of “Who Do You Love?,” “Move It on Over” and “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.” While Thorogood has been producing his same brand of raunchy bar-band rock since first picking up a guitar, it’s obvious that his fans wouldn’t have it any other way.

One Good Turn

Last year, when an earthquake hit Haiti, artist Gina Quaranto and her partners did not hesitate to organize a fundraising event. It was a success, and they helped raise more than $1,000 for the Red Cross. Six months later, when her former location, Place Gallery, was destroyed in the transformer explosion downtown, this same community came to the rescue, helping raise money to open Blackbird Studios. “There were artists that I didn’t know, who just read about it, that were like, ‘How can we help?’” Quaranto says.
