    John Branch, Gypsy Mitchell

    During the fated second run of the Relatives, a double-Reverend-fronted psychedelic gospel act from Dallas that reemerged in the 2010s, music heads were introduced to Gypsy Mitchell – an unconventional guitarist with deafening flair who deserved his own spotlight. Now mounting a solo turn, Mitchell’s been lighting up the SoCo soul cave with his durag, copious gold chains, and ornament-adorned guitar, which he plays behind his head (and with his teeth). Backed by the elite groove engine of Zach Ernst, Matt Strmiska, and Scott Nelson, plus backup vocalists Goldie Pipes and Jenny Carson – all in velour tracksuits – Mitchell & Co. impressed with forthcoming studio material including standout “Movin’."

    Monte Warden & the Dangerous Few

    Singer and songwriter Monte Warden has enjoyed many lives in the music biz: teenage rockabilly with Whoa! Trigger, country traditionalist with the Wagoneers, Buddy Holly-meets-Hank Williams roots rocker in his solo career, and million-selling songwriter for country acts like Patty Loveless, Travis Tritt and, as required by law for Lone Star tunesmiths, George Strait. The Austinite’s latest incarnation with the Dangerous Few may be his most ambitious: reimagining the style(s) of pre-rock pop music through the lens of a Texas native, dubbed the “Great Americana Songbook” by the wags at Paste. Boasting a self-titled debut of timeless originals co-produced by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2, Bowie), Warden and the Few hold down every third Thursday at Parker Jazz, bringing a salt-of-the-earth sensibility to the Songbook atmosphere.
