So Jeff Beck and ZZ Top are gonna stop by Sandia Casino Ampitheater (30 Rainbow Rd.) on Tuesday, Aug. 19, at 7pm to break guitar strings, destroy drumsticks and do damage to at least a few thousand eardrums. Here's hoping the Top sticks to older selections from its notoriously lengthy catalog; it would be hellacious to hear tunes from Tres Hombres or Dugüello up close and personal, sabes? On the other hand, hearing the hits would be decent, too, as long as we get to visit “La Grange” while skipping merrily through “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Tube Snake Boogie.” Plus, two of these fellows’ beards put to shame anything worn by hipsters today. Seeing those ultra-hairy accessories shimmy and shake to the mighty sounds of Texan freedom must be worth the price of admission on its own merit. Even better, this show also features one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time, Jeff Beck, a dude who’s been rightly compared with the likes of Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. Beck’s played with 'em all, from Nicky Hopkins to Morrissey, lending his style and influence to everything he touches ... from deep blues to purple pop. Tickets for this monolithic meetup range from $55 to $82. “Just let me know if you wanna go.”
