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.

Deep Dark Robot

Linda Perry, the former lead singer of 4 Non Blondes, sat down at a keyboard and led her band, Deep Dark Robot, through a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Angie.” It was midway through their April 22 set at Beauty Bar, and they crushed it, like they did their entire performance. This is a bar band that’s as tight as any I’ve seen recently, and with Perry’s knack for writing pop hits (happy customers include Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani and Pink), there’s no reason they can’t break bigger.
