Saturday, December 28: The Lionel Young Band. 7:30 p.m. Nissi’s, 2675 North Park Drive, Lafayette, 303- 665-2757.
Lionel Young, with the most metal-looking violin you’ll ever see, is one of the greatest oddities gracing the Boulder County music scene. With an array of pedals at his disposal, Young holds his violin like guitar and is able to do justice to the greatest axe-slingers to ever play rock ’n’ roll. Blues and more flow from his violin like dollar bills from Pacman Jones at a strip club. There are few cover bands like it in the area.
