Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown
The band’s namesake first gained notice as a blues guitar phenomenon out of Honey Grove, Texas. But Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown’s stop on Saturday night at The Burl, 375 Thompson Road in Lexington, will be a homecoming for the group’s drummer, Caleb Crosby, who hails from Winchester. The band’s Lexington date is a brief break from its tour, with AC/DC, which resumes Sunday in Columbus, Ohio. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. Visit Theburlky.com.
