George Thorogood and the Destroyers are having a “Rock Party” at the Route 66 Casino’s Legends Theater (14500 Central SW) on Friday, Sept 29. Before I send you off to this show for explicitly educational purposes, I must admit that, in high school, I loathed Thorogood and his brand of beer-swilling boogie-rock. But after I had the opportunity to hear the man handle his guitar at Popejoy Hall, I had to reconfigure my attitude. Additionally, Thorogood’s done much to keep the work of his predecessors (read: Bo Diddley or the Woolies) alive and kicking. Plus this is the dude who once performed 50 concerts in 50 states in 50 days. Not too shabby. Okay, millennials, I see you out there in Alibi-land rolling your eyes. But I’m a gonna tell you anyway. Put aside your preconceptions and get thee to the casino. It’s for realz rocanrol. All Ages • $29 to $65 • 8pm.
