TRES HOMBRES—Fans of long whiskers and classic rock, rejoice! ZZ Top is bad, ZZ Top is nationwide, ZZ Top is playing tonight. They'll wail on classics like "Legs" and "Cheap Sunglasses," and everyone shall rock the fuck out. ZZ Fun Fact™: The drummer—he's the one without a big, bushy beard—is named Frank Beard. NL

TOP TAPES
