The three bearded, trench-coated members of ZZ Top may have faded from the limelight with age, but some things remain consistent: namely, many people still go crazy for men dressed sharply. And they don’t come much sharper than the Top boys themselves, who, with 15 bestselling albums and more No. 1 hits than you could shake a pair of sunglasses at, need not do much more than bust out the opening chords of “Legs” to retain relevance. Joined onstage by Louisiana-born guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd, the closing evening of Soaring Eagle Casino’s Rock the Rapids festival is undoubtedly going to be full of RAWK, with multiple pairs of devil horns in the air and righteous rage to spare. Come on out and give the Topsters all your lovin’. And, if so inclined, all your hugs and kisses too. Don’t they deserve it?
