There is something wonderfully, unabashedly genuine about Austin-based songwriter and musician Emily Herring. The 2015 Ameripolitan Award nominee embraces the no-nonsense love, heartache and trouble in real country-western music, as you’ll hear on her album, Your Mistake (2013). You’ve got poetry and pedal steel, a true twang troubadour, uncompromising honesty to wrap round your soul as you down that last whiskey shot before the bartender kicks you out.

Herring and her band are wrapping up a two-year set of Tuesday-night midnight gigs at The White Horse, but no worries if you’ve missed out. There are plenty of weekend shows in the works on the schedule. However, if you’re able to make it a late night, see Emily Herring tonight at the witching hour at The White Horse, 500 Comal. Jacob Jaegar starts out the evening at 8 p.m., followed by Devin Jake at 10 p.m. It’s a good ‘un. Recommended.
