Joe Ely

Joe Ely might be the most Texan of the Texas music greats, with a catalog that weaves between hardcore honky-tonk, Woody Guthrie-ian folk, Mexican borderland ballads and bluesy rock, not to mention his pioneering alt-country work with the Flatlanders and a long-shelved synth-rock album that unknowingly presaged Austin’s computer-tech rebirth. His namesake band of the late-’70s with Lloyd Maines (Natalie’s dad) put on some legendarily rowdy shows at the Cabooze, around the time the Clash hand-picked them to open their tour. He’s on an acoustic tour with Austin guitar ace Jeff Plankenhorn. Canadian country singer Lucette opens. Chris Riemenschneider
