Chris Isaak

When: Sun., Sept. 19 2010

Leon Russell is mostly known as the ghostly troubadour who once performed with George Harrison and Eric Clapton while scoring his own hit with the song "Tight Rope." Next month, he's releasing The Union, a collaborative album with Elton John that features a portrait of the two handsome lads on its cover, proving once again that there are, in fact, second acts in America. At 8 tonight, Russell will perform at Stargazers Theatre & Event Center (10 S. Parkside Drive, for just $35. — Bill Forman

Also on the calendar:

Apart from a couple members of Pavement and the annual Stockton Asparagus Festival, Chris Isaak's California hometown isn't known for a whole lot. Which is why the musically inclined youngest son of a forklift driver and factory worker drove west to San Francisco and began gigging heavily at Haight Street venues like Nightbreak and the I-Beam. Those clubs are gone now, but after a massive hit called "Wicked Game," a couple of TV series and more than a dozen albums, Isaak remains as talented as ever. He's also got nice suits and great stage patter. See and hear him at 7 tonight at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave.,, for $53 to $65. — Bill Forman
