GARY CLARK, JR., THE DEPOT, Thursday, Oct. 10, 8 p.m., $26

The buzz that accompanied Gary Clark Jr.'s now-year-old debut, Black and Blu, was so deafening that it's still reverberating as he makes his way to Utah for his first visit since a Sundance Film Festival appearance a couple years back. A prodigy of sorts since childhood, Clark earned his stripes in Austin, Texas, and it's hard to think of a better place to learn and appreciate the blues-rock canon than the self-proclaimed "live music capital of the world" and the home stomping grounds of Stevie Ray Vaughan and his brother Jimmie. Jimmie Vaughan actually helped Clark along the way, and legendary Austin club Antone's gave Clark a fine place to work before he broke out nationally. Max Frost opens the show Thursday.
