FRIDAY 11/8. 8:30 p.m. Stickyz Rock ’n’ Roll Chicken Shack. $15.
When you’re a 20-year-old prodigy of a blues player from the same soil on which Robert Johnson proverbially cut a deal with the devil to play guitar, the temptation to mythologize yourself must be great. Not for Clarksdale, Miss., native Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, evidently, who explains his fount of talent in decidedly more pragmatic terms. “I just practice all the time,” Ingram said in a press release. “That’s the only deal I made, and it’s with myself.” He’s been on the second season of Netflix’s “Luke Cage,” he recorded an NPR Tiny Desk Concert with rap legend Rakim, and he’s coming to Central Arkansas for what’s probably the biggest, baddest blues show on the books this year. The Cerny Brothers open the show; get tickets at stickyz.com.
