Tonight’s Best Bet

Another embarrassment of musical riches faces San Marcos tonight. The Hill Country Gentlemen have honed their craft all summer at a regular Thursday night in-store for Superfly’s Lone Star Music Emporium and will play a full set tonight at the Triple Crown. They are joined by The Shady Rest for a great night of music. Folk Family Revival will heat up the Cheatham Street Warehouse with some hot licks and warm tones.  Our pick just might be the old fashioned Honky-Tonk tunes of Roy Heinrich and The Pickups (pictured), though.  Heinrich is a Texan who has always had a passion for music. He bought his first musical instrument, a button accordion, from the Sears catalog with money he got picking cotton at fourteen years old. He formed Houston’s first punk-rock band back in the day. But his true love has always been classic country Honky Tonk and it is there that he thrives. His songs are lively, boot-scootin’ and often touching, Heinrich and his band The Pickups will be at Riley’s Tavern tonight, the perfect setting for these musical jewels.
