9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz.

Just on name alone, Coco Montoya earns blues cred. But Montoya makes his bones on his resume. The California-born guitarist got his start in Albert Collins' band in the 1970s. In the '80s, Montoya became one of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, staying with the band for a decade. More recently, and closer to home, the guitarist contributed to the Cate Brothers album “Radioland.” The W.C. Handy Award winner comes to town in support of his latest album, “Dirty Deal,” his sixth in just over a decade. The album finds him still pulling out fiery blues-rock riffs with his trademark “upside-down-right-handed” guitar (he's left handed, but learned on a right-handed guitar).
