When Brown tired of switching between an electric guitar and a steel guitar, he invented the “guitsteel,” which combines them and adds to his take on old-school honky-tonk, with a little surf rock thrown in for good measure and help on acoustic guitar from his wife, Tanya Rae.

Texas Country (Free Show; 12:00PM)


Old 97's

Genre: Alternative Country

Madison King Opens

Advance Tickets Recommended; 8:00PM

The Old 97’s, made up of guitarist/vocalist Rhett Miller, bassist/vocalist Murry Hammond, guitarist Ken Bethea and drummer Philip Peeples, emerged from Dallas twenty years ago at the forefront of a musical movement blending rootsy, country-influenced songwriting with punk rock energy and delivery. The band performed on TV, from Letterman to Austin City Limits, and had their music appear in countless film and TV soundtracks (they appeared as themselves in the Vince Vaughn/Jennifer Aniston movie ‘The Break Up’). Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan put the band on a continuous loop on his iPod while writing the show’s final scene. Their latest release, ‘Most Messed Up’, finds the Old 97′s at their raucous, boozy best, all swagger and heart and is due out April 29th.
