Dave Mason is hardly a household name, but he's had a rather impressive rock 'n' roll career. At the age of 18, he founded the seminal prog-rock band Traffic with Steve Winwood, penning the anthemic "Feeling Alright" a year later. Now in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fameadmittedly a dubious honorTraffic is one of the rare bands to employ a sax, a flute and a keyboard and not suck. Mason left Traffic for a solo career before the band really found its way, but his classic "We Just Disagree" is one of those rare '70s hits that still sounds good today. You can catch Dave Mason at the House of Blues at 8 p.m. Thursday. Tickets range from $23.50 to $29.50. Call 214-978-BLUE or visit ticketmaster.com.
