JOHNNY WINTER

Friday and Saturday, Pyramid Cabaret. Legendary blues guitarist Johnny Winter, 67, released his first single in 1959 and never stopped.

Pantages Playhouse Theatre, Saturday.

His newest album, Jeff Beck's Rock 'N' Roll Party, is a tribute to the late Les Paul. The concert is sold out; if tickets are released day of show, they will be $86.50 at the Pantages box office.
