ROCK 'N' ROLL | Gregory Townson 

Fresh from a tour Down Under as a jet-set, masked, guitar-slingin' luchador in Los Straitjackets, Rochester native Gregory Townson returns to what has made every endeavor he tackles — from The Essentials to The Hi-Risers — so goddamn sweet: the man and his songs. That's not to dismiss the fleet-fingered fret frenzy Townson unleashes on his guitar. I mean, the cat can really spank the plank even when it's just him and his trusty Tele. But the humor and honesty and classic pop hooks in his tunes are unmatched. Call it nouveau classic, call it rock 'n' roll, call your friends and tell 'em Greg Townson is back in town.

Gregory Townson plays Friday, March 29, 6-9 p.m. at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. Free. abilenebarandlounge.com.
