Seventy-three-year-old rock and roll pioneer Chubby Checker was just 18 when he released his landmark version in 1960 of Hank Ballard’s song “The Twist.” The song’s chart-topping success catapulted him to superstardom and spawned a whole rock and roll dance movement, which led to hits like “Let’s Twist Again” and “Limbo Rock.” As the 1960s got weird and Checker’s style fell out of vogue, he reinvented himself, as he has countless times over the years. Thursday, catch this legend in action, drawing from his expansive and diverse catalog in the historic confines of Gruene Hall. $35, 8pm, Gruene Hall, 1281 Gruene, (830) 606-1281
