It's part of the "Starbucks Coffee Concert" series--admission is free, as are Starbucks refreshments, served starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday, January 27, at Kerr Cultural Center, 6110 North Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale. The concert follows at 10:30. Reservations are requested. 965-5377.
Slash: The former Guns N' Roses guitarist and his new band bring "Slash's Blues Ball," a two-hour set of blues-rock covers like Jimi Hendrix's "Stone Free," the James Gang's "Funk #49" and Cream's "Crossroads," back to the Cajun House, the very venue at which they were shut down by the cops after just a few numbers when they played there last April. The show is scheduled for Wednesday, January 28, at 7117 East Third Avenue in Scottsdale. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster. 945-5150, 784-4444.
