    Hot Summer Nights w/ Kathryn Legendre, Texas String Assembly, Gus Clark (9:00) [inside]

    If her step-in set at this spring’s Two Step Inn is any indication, Kathryn Legendre’s ready to launch from local honky tonks to bigger stages. Since her debut Old Soul a decade ago, the ATX songwriter has delivered the kind of hook-laden tunes and grounded lyrics that led female artists to top the Nineties country charts, with her latest singles even adding a soulful touch. The wild bluegrass of septet Texas String Assembly picks apart last year’s raucous, jamming debut LP DOGGABONE, while Seattle transplant Gus Clark brings his sweet throwback honky-tonking and blues tenor to open.

    Lizzie, the Musical

    That legendary company called Doctuh Mistuh Productions returns to Austin after a five-year hiatus to present this rock musical adaption of the grisly Borden Family murders in 1893 and the subsequent trial of Lizzie Borden. The show – which premiered in NYC in 2009 and is written by Steven Cheslik-deMeyer, Tim Maner, and Alan Steven Hewitt – is directed here by the irrepressible Michael McKelvey, with musical direction by Ellie Jarrett Shattles. And this is our full review of the production!
    Through July 30. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2pm. $24 and up.
