Something to do…and look at!


Life is good since my Tuesday nights are now filled with watching one of the sexiest (and by sexy I mean in that backwoods down-home country boy way) singer songwriters in Austin croon raw-heartfelt-country-folk-rock.

If you’re looking for a way to fill your Tuesday night (for under $20), I highly suggest heading down to the Saxon Pub, where for the next 4 months, country boy Hayes Carll and his revolving band will take stage at 8pm.

Never mind the fact that he is a captivating blend of perfectly un-refined raspy vocals (think Bob Dylan meets Tom Waits), Townes Van Zandt-esque attitude and wit, that charming Texas drawl, and guitar licks and chords sweet enough to lullaby…but ladies- you’ll want to watch him play all night long.

Plus, the Saxon Pub is a great place, no matter who is plinking or plucking away on stage. Good beer, nice waitresses, dim lights, creaky chairs… the place shrieks with character.

Anyways- always a sucker for cowboy shirts, beards, beer and good country folk music, I’m settling in for a long four months at the Saxon… dancing, drooling and drinking.

(PS. I took this pic from Hayes Carll’s myspace account, where you can find plenty more…)

    Hayes Carll’s music is great, but the time between songs is just as entertaining!

    Four months?! I had no idea.

    I am really looking forward to the next 15 Tuesdays!
