The Suitcase Junket is a guy named Matt Lorenz who decided one day to find out how much music one man could make playing solo with no technological gimmicks. The really interesting thing is that this slide-guitarist and foot-pedal percussionist performs bluesy songs worth hearing — the amazement factor is just a bonus. He’s at Blue (650 Congress St., Portland) at 8 p.m. No cover (all ages). 774-4111. portcityblue.com.
