Gentry Bronson, playing its brand of eclectic rock with a twist of blues and folk, will open for Ray Manzarak at Friday, Dec. 2, at McNear’s Mystic Theatre. Manzarak, Doors founding member and keyboard wizard, will appear with Bay Area guitarman Roy Rogers and his band. This evening of “new meets venerable” starts at 7 p.m. and should definitely light your fire. The Mystic’s location: 23 Petaluma Blvd. North. Phone 765-212 for ticket information.
