By any other name, Bill Kirchen and Too Much Fun will leave you smiling long after the last shimmering chord fades to a memory. Lead guitarist for ’60s country-rockers Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, it’s Kirchen’s Telecaster propelling “Hot Rod Lincoln” into overdrive. These days, Kirchen and company dish up an evening of entertaining Americana, with dazzling guitar licks, wry commentary, pure showmanship and a whole big bunch of wholesome fun. Catch them Thursday at Southland Ballroom in Raleigh. For more info, southlandballroom.com.
