May 21 Rick Walters and Friends w/ Sara Pace www.sarapace.com 9pm $5 “Pace is pure Americana. She has a perfect voice for country, quite a bit like Loretta Lynn but less twangy and much more refined, a la Emmylou Harris. She’s got the right voice for folk too, plaintive and musing, like Joan Baez.” – Samuel L. Wereb, www.rockzillaworld.com Texas and Americana Music Reviews Sat. May 22 Joe Rathbone w/ Ben Burns www.joerathbone.com 9pm $5 “Equal parts contemplation, confession and celebration, the easy-going pop delivery of Joe Rathbone achieves a personal connection without being overly sentimental.” – Creative Loafing, Atlanta, GA “Think John Wesley Harding meets Joe Jackson.” – Boston Globe Sun.
