Greg Ginn and the Texas Corrugators with Jim Thompson at Balliceaux 

April 16.

Music history will remember him as founding guitarist for legendary '80s hardcore band Black Flag, but 55-year old Greg Ginn has soldiered on as an uncompromising musician, producer and head of SST Records. Heavily influenced by free jazz, Ginn was listed as the No. 99 guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone. But don't come expecting the raw punk fury of old. Ginn is performing with the Texas Corrugators, a meandering instrumental group mixing jazz, psychedelic blues, Latin, country and maybe sound loops. Former Richmond musician and all-around lovely guy, Jim Thompson (Alter Natives, Bio Ritmo, Tulsa Drone) will join Ginn on drums. Greg Ginn and the Texas Corrugators play Balliceaux with the CSC Funk Band on Friday, April 16, at 8 p.m. Free.
