Friends assemble at the beer-and-pizza paradise in South Austin to put a little cash in the plaid pockets of Davy Jones. The legendary local guitarist of Hickoids, Dicks, and Big Foot Chester fame – whose Fruitburst Les Paul riffing could be likened to James Williamson on a pig farm – is currently waltzing though cancer treatment. Those same Hickoids, having just returned from a Jones-less tour through Europe, promise to sleaze up the stage before my own gang of shitless shit-talkers, Cunto!, attempt to cure Jones’ cancer through comically backwoods punk rock. – Kevin Curtain
One decade ago, British rock star Ian McLagan approached Continental Club boss Steve Wertheimer in search of a happy hour residency. With no room in the South Congress club’s books, Wertheimer referred the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame-enshrined keyboardist to Warehouse District watering hole the Lucky Lounge. The rest is history. Mac and his Bump Band, anchored by all-star local guitarist “Scrappy” Jud Newcomb, count 10 years of getting Lucky on the weekly. Also cause for celebration: Yep Roc just released Mac’s eighth solo album, United States. 6pm, free. – Kevin Curtain
