Friday To-Do: George McConnell



9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $7.

Before serving time as lead guitarist of Beanland, Kudzu Kings and jam band grand poobahs, Widespread Panic, Mississippi musician George McConnell underwent an intensive, complete immersion course in the ways of the world starting as a 10-year-old, working on the back of a Falstaff truck whose route pinballed back and forth from juke joints to pool halls across the Mississippi Delta. Now, McConnell is delving into the world of solo performance and bringing his brand of airy blues-folk to Sticky's for an evening of bouncy noodling that'll surely be greeted with much spinning and wobbling of shoulders. Fayetteville's Charliehorse opens.
