Who: Tex Smith has made some damn good albums. The Austin Music Minute recommends taking time to check out Smith’s self-titled debut, plus the beautiful and heartbreaking To A Bird Singing Woe (2010), and the rich roots introspection of A Wayfarer’s Lament (2012). All of it’s a journey through heart and soul, love and loss, and onward to new beginnings. Ever been to hell and back? Smith tells the tale with poetic magnificence and real country.
What: Tell you what – there’s a Tex Smith show tonight, the kind that sends away a long, rough Monday. Treat yo’self.
When: Tonight, starting at 8 p.m.
Why: It’s good for winding down. Be sure you’re there to catch all three. Recommended.
