Tonight’s Best Bet

The River Road Boys (pictured) are one of the finest purveyors of that toe-tappin’, hand clappin’, jumpy jivin’ known as Western Swing and will be part of the Texas Natural Festival and 25th Annual Western Swing Hall of Fame Show. The whole festival is loaded with all-stars you will hear free of charge at Courthouse Square. Be sure to catch Herb Remington (he invented the Remington Steel Guitar) play that “Remington Ride”. Also, at Cheatham Street Warehouse tonight, Javi Garcia will perform for his CD release party. Garcia is someone to watch- he’s an amazing amalgam of the Rolling Stones, Iggy and the Stooges, Alejandro Escovedo and a Texas dust storm.
