Even a cursory listen to blues veteran Koko Taylor‘s now raspy, now delectably sensual renditions of classics like Albert King’s “Born Under a Bad Sign” makes it clear that the title of her newest collection, Force of Nature, is as appropriate as the use of hot sauce on pig’s feet. Taylor performs at 10 p.m. at Tornado Alley, 11319 Elkin St., Wheaton. $15. (301) 929-0795. (Reuben Jackson)
