    Sat., Sept. 22, 8 p.m.

    “All I do is play music; I’m too lazy to work,” Jerron Paxton, aka Blind Boy Paxton, once told website the Country Blues.

Though he does retain some sight, Paxton is legally blind. Catch him on Saturday, September 22, at the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington. at Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington (map). $22/25.
