10 Minutes With Joe Ely
Joe Ely marks his 70th birthday Friday night at the Paramount Theatre. Often compared to both Bruce Springsteen and onetime tour mate Joe Strummer for his dynamic stage presence and songs that speak to the heart of his home state, the locally sourced Lubbock native will be joined onstage by a host of friends. They plan to cover all eras of his storied career.

Paul Simon mostly repeated Tuesday’s set list from the first of two Bass Concert Hall shows – only three songs from the upcoming Stranger to Stranger – but no one at a full Moody Theater was complaining. How many times does one get to witness history, anyway?

A Posies Pop-Up Show
Pacific Northwest duo Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer have performed together as the Posies for nearly 30 years. In that time they’ve become masters of power pop, producing guitar jangle, sugary melodies, and impeccable harmonies.
