Lukas Nelson & The Promise of the Real

When: Thu., July 23 2009

Well, it finally happened. Willie Nelson swapped Trigger, his notorious nylon string acoustic guitar (Willie obviously missed the memo that guitars are supposed to be named after girls) for a harder-hitting Fender electric. Wait — my bad — that's actually Lukas Nelson, Willie Nelson's son, with the Fender. Bandanas, long hair, flowing shirt ... I guess what they say is true: The apple never falls far from the tree. Lukas Nelson & the Promise of the Real pump out blues and rock grooves coupled with the lyrical wailings (for lack of a better word) of the younger Nelson. They'll play at 7:30 tonight in Studio Bee at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., If you go to the $13 show ($10 in advance), try to find out what Lukas named his guitar. Hopefully it's something a little more, um, appropriate. — Ken Voeller
