LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM
9 p.m. Juanita's. $45 adv., $55 day of.

Of all the awesome creative forces in Fleetwood Mac, I think you've got to give the nod to Lindsey Buckingham as the crucial factor that led the band to the creative and commercial heights it achieved.

He was not only the architect of many, many of the band's finest songs, but he was also the mechanic, tinkering with the overall machinery and keeping it running at top performance. He's also a wickedly talented and innovative guitar player who doesn't always get the credit he deserves in that department (check out "I'm So Afraid," from either of his recent live albums; it smokes). He's no stranger to solo albums. His first was 1981's "Law and Order," a sublime, rewarding collection.

His recent shows are truly solo affairs, with Buckingham performing with a drum machine and an array of guitars. What a great opportunity this will be to see one of rock's brightest, longest-running talents in a small venue.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
