David Lindley
Saturday at Polsky Theatre
Released in 1981, David Lindley’s “El Rayo-X” is a cult classic. A party album bolstered by exceptional musicianship, the soothing set of reggae, blues and rock sounds is just as delightful as it was 34 years ago. At the time, Lindley was primarily known as the multi-instrumentalist responsible for adding appealing textures to the work of singer-songwriters like Jackson Browne and Warren Zevon. A frequent performer at Knuckleheads, Lindley will re-create favorites from “El Rayo-X” such as “Mercury Blues” in a more formal setting on Saturday.
8 p.m. Saturday, April 4. Polsky Theatre. 913-469-4445. jccc.edu/theseries. $32.
