Preview: ZZ Top at Gexa Energy Pavilion

Sunday, June 24, at Gexa Energy Pavilion

There are no surprises on ZZ Top's new Rick Rubin-produced EP, Texicali. It sounds exactly like a ZZ Top album. That's not oversimplifying: After 40 years as a band, they've created their own brand and absorbed a die-hard fanbase. I'll probably get run out of Texas for saying the EP is pretty unremarkable, especially their "reworking" of a line from fellow Houstonites Screwed Up Click's "25 Lighters" into the typically bluesy slink of "I Gotsta Get Paid," but the live show will no doubt spread its wings and pull out the oldies. I guess the question now is: When do ZZ Top get their statue?
