Guitar virtuoso Little Man aka Chris Perricelli has done really well for himself in the local music scene—take, for example, his recent opening spot for Billy Idol’s super short acoustic set at The Current’s ten year birthday party. Not too shabby and as well he should. His retro-bluesy-rock stylings combine funky rhythyms with fretboard fireworks, a sound that works well with his full band or like tonight at the Aster Cafe as a solo acoustic performer. 9 PM. Free. —Tracy Oxford
