Ian McLagan, Jon Notarthomas

When: Sun., June 5, 8 p.m. 2011

He may be a grizzled rock vet, but Ian McLagan's music still shimmies with a hook-laden vibrancy that goes back to his British Invasion start. He specializes in a rock 'n' roll boogie-woogie deeply informed by Chuck Berry's hopped-up rhythm and blues. (Indeed, McLagan's backed Berry.) His biggest fame came in the mid-'60s and '70s as a member of U.K. mods the Small Faces and the Faces, but he's spent the last 35 years as an in-demand session player/sideman (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Billy Bragg, Warren Haynes) while cultivating a solo career, too. His crisply infectious bluesy piano-soul inhabits a timeless corner of the rock canon. —Chris Parker
