THURSDAY 1/16. The Joint Theater & Coffeehouse. 7:30 p.m. $30.
There must have been some pressure for Italian guitarist Alberto Lombardi to give up electric rock playing in favor of his career as an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist, or vice versa. But here he is, interpreting Clapton and Hendrix on something called the Alberto Lombardi Stratocaster Tribute tour and then turning around and plucking out delicate Italian traditionals on an acoustic Taylor. Lombardi’s here as a guest of the Argenta Acoustic Music Series; grab tickets at argentaacoustic.com.
