Carrying On

If it's possible for something good to ever come out of the death of a rock 'n' roll icon, it's never the rehash of greatest hits, the concert DVDs or the random memorabilia. In the case of Texas guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan, the best thing that came from, or rather, was inspired by, his death was the formation of the Arc Angels. Vaughan's former bassist and drummer, Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton respectively, teamed up with two guitar-wielding frontmen, Charlie Sexton, the humble but sexy-voiced storyteller, and Doyle Bramhall II, all cocksure and husk. 1992 saw the release of their successful debut album, and Saturday sees them playing together again after a years-long hiatus. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.; show starts at 8:30 p.m. The show is 21 and up. Tickets are $23.50 to $100. House of Blues is located at 2200 N. Lamar St. Call 214-373-8000 or visit
