Kid Rock, ZZ Top

SPAC, Wednesday


Kid Rock got a sad last fall when his bestie Mittens lost the presidency of ‘Merica despite the ringing endorsement of his campaign anthem “Born Free.” To cheer himself up, he released Rebel Soul and went on tour with bearded guitar spinners ZZ Top (the bad mofos at left). Somewhere along the way, he made time to drink beer and shoot skeet with Hank Williams Jr. in the video for album single “Redneck Paradise,” for which he probably sacrificed his last remaining shred of Detroit hip-hop credibility. So, it doesn’t look like the redneck way has suffered much under a second Obama term. Go see for yourself Wednesday night. (Sept. 4, 6:45 PM, $29, Saratoga Spa State Park, Saratoga Springs, 584-9330)
