Looking back, the 90’s are remembered as a bygone decade when cool kids rocked shoulder pads without irony, Winona Ryder wasn’t a convicted felon and Jonny Lang crooned “Lie to Me” on the radio. A precocious 15-year-old from North Dakota, Lang set out as a dark horse in the ranks of teenie boppers, crafting a saccharine version of Stevie Ray Vaughn’s rollicking blues at a time when Aaron Carter dominated charts. After the success of his breakthrough Lie to Me in 1997, the teenage guitar prodigy cemented his reputation with a smattering of Grammy Award nominations and a Best Gospel Album title. While the passing years have brought on many sea-changes for Lang – he made a public conversion to Christianity after a struggle with substance abuse – the now 35-year-old veteran of the scene is a master of contemporary blues known for sharing a stage with the likes of Jeff Beck and B.B. King. 8pm, $15-50, The Aztec Theater, 104 N Saint Mary’s
