Peter Novelli 

New Orleans guitarist Peter Novelli starts with the blues and ends with the blues. In between those indigo goal posts the man throws in zydeco and swamp boogie. He shreds thick and heavy, funky and mean. He's like a cape-less guitar hero one minute, or a gently strumming Delta troubadour the next, and then he careens into live polyrhythmic jams. It's red hot throughout. He has shared the stage and the studio with cats like Dr. John and Chris Thomas King ("O Brother Where Art Thou?") to name a few. Genuine road-burnin' blues.

Peter Novelli performs Thursday, June 21, 9 p.m. at Sticky Lips Juke Joint, 830 Jefferson Road. $5. 292-5544, stickylipsbbq.com.
