Los Lonely Boys with Hector Anchondo Band and The Mezcal Brothers, 9 p.m. Friday, The Royal Grove. Henry, Jojo and Ringo Garcia, the band of brothers known as Los Lonely Boys last brought the blend of blues, Latin soul and rock they call “Texican rock ‘n’ roll” to Lincoln four years ago. This time, the Grammy winners (for their signature hit “Heaven") are playing the Royal Grove on a bill that will be kicked off by a "top this" set of raging rockabilly from Lincoln's The Mezcal Brothers.
Dvorak and Brahms: Lincoln Symphony Orchestra, 7:30 p.m. Friday, Lied Center for Performing Arts. Internationally acclaimed violinist Bomsori Kim joins Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra for a gripping performance of Dvořák’s passionately lyrical Violin Concerto in A Minor, followed by Brahms’s intense and expansive Symphony No. 1, its triumphant conclusion placing him squarely as one of the greats in classical music.
Clutch with Big Business and The Inspector Cluzo, 8 p.m. Sunday, Bourbon Theatre. It's been two years since Maryland Southern-tinged hard rockers Clutch played the Bourbon Theatre. Then they were trying out new material on stage for what became last year's "Book of Bad Decisions." Now they're showcasing that album in a power-packed set.
Tinsley Ellis, 6 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, Zoo Bar. Georgia blues-rock guitarist Tinsley Ellis has been playing the Zoo Bar for more than 30 years and loves coming back. This week, he's there for two nights --"In Lincoln, people just keep coming out," he told the Journal Star a couple years ago. "So we try to give a little extra. ... I like the early shows. I better see all the old faces there or I’ll go get ‘em.”
The Infamous Stringdusters with John Craigie, 8 p.m. Wednesday, Bourbon Theatre. Grammy winners The Infamous Stringdusters have been tagged as as a cross between The David Grisman Quintet, The Grateful Dead and The Mahavishu Orchestra for their blend of progressive/aggressive bluegrass with improvisational jazz, sprawling grooves and some indie rock. The Colorado outfit hasn't been to Lincoln for a couple years, so expect some new jams.
