CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Christian Lopez has a clear-cut vision of what he wants to do with his music.
The 18-year-old singer/songwriter from Martinsburg doesn't lack for ambition or talent. After taking two stabs at fame on "American Idol," the Shepherd University student is out with his band, Joe Taxi, trying to build a music career the old-fashioned way: by playing shows.
In advance of the rootsy folk rock/folk pop band's performance Saturday night at the Boulevard Tavern, the gazz spoke to Lopez about where he's been and where he wants to go.
Q: How far did you get on "American Idol?"
