Buddy Guy at ACL Live. If you’re looking to cross musical heavyweights off your bucket list this weekend presents several opportunities. The Chicago bluesman turns 79 at the end of the month, making this one feel the most pressing. Thankfully, the guitar great, who influenced countless superstar ax-slingers from Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton, is still in fighting form. Reviews from the current tour find him commanding the stage and delivering his characteristic, blistering guitar solos that boggle the mind. $39-$59. 8 p.m. 310 W. Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com — D.S.S.
