Johnny Rivers

When: Sun., Sept. 25, 6 p.m. 2011

"Secret Agent Man," "Poor Side of Town," "Summer Rain": a few of the hits Johnny Rivers scored during the late '60s, when the born-too-late guitarist enjoyed his most mainstream success. But he's always been around, playing an in-the-pocket, straight-ahead rock and roll that might be best compared to early rockers like Buddy Holly, while at the same time dabbling in different styles — chiefly soul; his covers of "Baby I Need Your Lovin" and "The Tracks of My Tears" both charted, and a version of "Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu" still gets plenty of airplay.

Price: $32 (with fees).
