Bullet the Blue Sky

Austin folkgrass sensations the Greencards' debut, Movin' On, which hit No. 5 on the Americana Music Chart in April, has been picked up for national distribution by Portland-based Burnside Distribution. The trio plays San Marcos' Cheatham Street Warehouse Friday before a monthlong tour up to Fred Eaglesmith's Roots on the River festival in Vermont.

Witness a different kind of heavy metal as several area smiths and sculptors show off their creations in the latest installation of "Metalamongus," 6-10pm Saturday at the Design Center of Austin in the Penn Field complex on South Congress. Free food, drink, and music, probably that other metal.

In order to accommodate Thee Vinyl Trip with waxman Dennis Campa, "TCB" has moved his Beerland Western Wednesday start time to 6pm. Lone Stars are still $1.50, and this week's offering is a goodurn: John Ford's 1962 meditation on justice and legend, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.
