RAY DAVIES Long before Oasis made brother squabbling the norm in British pop music there was the legendary Kinks. They probably deserve more respect considering they brought distorted guitars to the masses with, “You Really Got Me,” and their concept records The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society and Lola Versus Powerman and the Money-Go-Round are classics. Their chief songwriter, Ray Davies, will be dipping into the Kinks catalog as well as playing selections from his recent stellar solo material. With talk of the brothers finally doing a reunion, you shouldn’t miss this chance to see a bona fide legend go acoustic. Thursday, March 25 at The Canyon, 28912 Roadside Drive, Agoura Hills. (818) 879-5016.
