The Monday Night Blues series continues May 7 with Smokin’ Joe Kubek and Bnois King beginning 7 p.m. at the Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission will be $15.

Red-hot rockin’ Texas blues band Smokin’ Joe Kubek and Bnois King are well-known to the local blues crowd and will bring songs from their latest Alligator release, “Have Blues, Will Travel.” Kubek’s raucous roadhouse fretwork is expertly complimented by King’s equally fiery guitar and soulful vocals. Together, the two create a one-two punch of raw, tough, Lone Star blues/rock.

Next up in the weekly series are, May 14, Studebaker John ($10); May 21, Albert Castiglia ($10); and May 28, Harper ($15). For more information on the Monday night series, visit the Time Out Blues link on
