Saw Ruckus[Wiki] last night at the Cafe Amsterdam[Wiki], dropped in for dinner and a song or two and stayed 'til midnight thirty. When I was younger, I used to think of musicians like Joe Satriani[Wiki] and Eric Johnson[Wiki] as masters of the guitar. Nowadays I realize that there are guitarists with those chops, who can throw in licks that cover the best of their work while playing bluesy rock that appeals to me now. The bassist, who grabbed a guitar for a few numbers, and whose name I forget (Trevor? He was blind), is such a musician. Some good original stuff, some fun covers, good people watching, and they were conscious of their audience and not being too loud, although sometimes this mean that the band's balance was off, overall it meant we enjoyed the evening a lot. Worth a listen.
