ZZ Top

Recently, a friend asked me the name of “that one ZZ Top song, the one that’s about a brothel.” I replied that he was talking about the 1973 blues rock gem “La Grange,” but I felt like it could have been any of the band’s songs. The trio’s trademark sound almost always calls to mind the sleazier side of life. Maybe it’s their delightfully dirty approach to the blues or those sunglasses that seem meant to reflect the neon lights of some shitty dive. At any rate, these dudes are legends who have been as consistent as any classic rock band over the years—and their live shows really cook. $45-$125, 8pm Sat-Sun, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com. —James Courtney
