Unwigged and Unplugged, An Evening with Christopher Guest, Michael McKean & Harry Shearer 

When: Wed., April 29 2009

"Afro-Sheen and apple pie / PTA and FBI!" Yes, Spinal Tap is touring America. Actually, it's the men behind the myth: Unwigged, unplugged and sans drummer, comedians Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer will regale us with semi-acoustic renditions of "Hell Hole" and "Sex Farm," as well as songs from their more genteel alter egos, the Folksmen. True, a less thunderous take on Tap may seem to be missing the point, but it turns out the lyrics are even better when decipherable. Plus, McKean is actually a great singer and once played with "Walk Away Renee" / "Pretty Ballerina" hit purveyors the Left Banke. Showtime is 8 tonight at the Paramount Theatre (1621 Glenarm Place, Denver, paramountdenver.com). Tickets for the all-ages concert range from $39.50 to $55. Puppet show not included. — Bill Forman
