It's blues on blues when vocalist-guitarist JD Simo—who just worked with director Baz Luhrmann on his upcoming Elvis biopic—teams up with Boston trio GA-20 for two wintery Florida shows.

Ruth Eckerd Hall's intimate Murray Theatre welcomes the classic Chicago-style combo for the first time on Friday (with a new allotment of $17.50 tickets made available right when we sent this to press) then it's over to Lakeland's even more intimate Union Hall on Saturday.
The music will satisfy fans of Black Keys but also more traditional acts like John Lee Hooker. Whatever style you're a fan of, wear a mask.
