The last time local artist Sarah Jaffe was in the Granada, she cleaned up at the Dallas Observer Music Awards, winning Best Solo Act, Best Album, Best Song, Best Folk Act, and Best Female Vocalist. This time, she performed to a sold out crowd, who came in droves to listen to her sing. Jaffe released her first full-length album in April, Surburban Nature, now available in vinyl.

There were two opening bands – Jonathan Evan Clark and Seryn. We missed the first opener, but made it in time to see most of Seryn’s set. It was quite striking walking into the theater in mid-song. Read on for the full review after the jump.

Drive-by Truckers – “Drag the Lake Charlie” webisode

10:30 pm by

Tomorrow, Houston temporarily gets even more badass, from the moment the Drive-by Truckers cross into our city limits till the moment they leave. You’ve got two chances to check out one of the hardest-working bands in the business, who over the course of 14 years have carved out a reputation as some of the best songwriters and performers in alt-country. Their three-guitar blitzkrieg is now supplemented by keyboardist Jay Gonzalez, who joined the band prior to the recording of their latest album, The Big To-Do. As part of the promotion for the record, the band released webisodes explaining either the lyrical or musical origins of most of the songs. Check out the webisode for my favorite song off of it, “Drag the Lake Charlie,” and head to Cactus tomorrow at 3:30 and House of Blues tomorrow night. Snag your tickets here!

I love that the DBT’s are forming relationships in the jam world… almost as much as I love the lyric: “I’m almost out of Valium, courage, and self-respect.”
