BLUES | Blind Boy Paxton 

Though a well-rounded multi-instrumentalist, Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton shines brightest with a guitar in his lap. You could say he plays in the Piedmont style, and you wouldn't be wrong, but there's something in the young man's voice that burns hotter beyond the fire and longing of just straight up acoustic blues. Based in L.A. and barely into his 30's, Blind Boy Paxton is a seasoned soul who renders goose bumps out of his fingertips. Like Lonnie Johnson? Well then, you're gonna love this cat.

Blind Boy Paxton plays with The Downhill Strugglers on Friday, January 23, at Sticky Lips BBQ, 830 Jefferson Road. 9 p.m. $15-$20.
