Billy Gibbons and the BFGs
Tue. Dec. 1 | Billy Gibbons has legs. The first beard in ZZ Top issued that band's 15th LP in 45 years, La Futura, in 2012, and he's now touring his first solo album, the Cuban-accented Perfectamundo (Concord). Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown opens at 8 p.m. at the Orpheum Theater.

Nik Turner's Hawkwind
Thu. Dec. 3 | If space is the final frontier, where does that leave Nik Turner? Now 75, the Thunder Rider in English outre explorers Hawkwind got jettisoned from the enterprise twice, in 1976 and in 1984. Touring again under the old moniker, his new Space Fusion Odyssey (Cleopatra) goes boldly, everywhere. Hedersleben opens at 10 p.m. at Siberia.
