James McMurtry @Midnight, Kevin McKinney @10pm – $8 cover @9:30pm. No advance tickets. 21+ only.
Never one to rest on his laurels, James McMurtry continues to tour constantly, and consistently puts on a “must-see” powerhouse performance. ‘The Washington Post’ noted McMurtry’s live prowess: “Much attention is paid to James McMurtry’s lyrics, and rightfully so: He creates a novel’s worth of emotion and experience in four minutes of blisteringly stark couplets. What gets overlooked, however, is that he’s an accomplished rock guitar player.”
Kevin McKinney, the Soulhat frontman’s eccentric songwriting and untraditional phrasings make him shine as a singer-songwriter.
