Blues fans have yet another reason to start the weekend early on Thursday nights as local blues gurus Smokin' Joe Sciallo and The Mighty Burners team up with Magic Dave and The New Mules for back-to-back gigs in south downtown. The night starts at Bristol Brewing Company on South Tejon Street where The Mighty Burners raise the roof then burn it down in the early evening from 7 to 10 p.m.
Then, just when you thought you'd have to put away your blues shoes and lay off the booze, you can choose to cruise up Tejon Street to the Wayfarer where Magic Dave and the New Mules have more good news from the muse to blow your fuse before you snooze, until 1 a.m., dudes.
