Blues fans shouldn't have too hard a time deciding where to spend New Year's Eve this year. Local blues harp hellion Magic Dave (pictured below) will be joined at Jr.'s Bar and Grill by two of L.A.'s finest musicians, string strangler Junior Watson and harp huffer Lynwood Slim. A founding member of the Mighty Flyers, and later a member of Canned Heat, Watson is known for his lighthearted, almost comical style of singing and guitar playing, epitomized by his Herb Alpert-esque song "Two Tacos" on his recent album If I Had a Genie. Lynwood Slim is a frequent collaborator of Watson's and has played with the likes of Leonard "Baby Doo" Caston and Walter Horton.
