Blues at Skipper's

Whether you like blues music or risque comedy, Bobby Rush has the bases covered. Tonight, Skipper's Smokehouse will present Halloween Booty Shakin' featuring the "Trickster of Love." Rush blends vocals, harmonica, sequin-clad background dancers and costume changes to pull off songs titled Loving a Big Fat Wom-an and People Sure Act Funny. In addition to original material, Rush covers tunes from Sonny Boy Williamson, Robert Nighthawk, and other classic blues musicians. Warning: the show is not recommended for the politically correct population.

Bobby Rush will perform at 8 p.m., 910 Skipper Road. Tickets are $20. Call 971-0666.
