The nice thing about this week’s main selection is that if you miss it, you’ll have another chance to catch it. On Friday the great Robert Ellis will be at 3TEN at ACL Live with Tom Brosseau, and then back again the next night (that’s Saturday, in case the days of the week often vex you). Pick one! Or go to both! Whichever is fine, just as long as you make sure to see Ellis this week. The guy is mega talented, and his new self titled album is a gem. See you out there.
PS – If you’re feeling frisky tonight, I’ll be DJ’ing the X Games kickoff party at Stubb’s. Chevy Metal (it has Taylor Hawkins from Foo Fighters in it) are headlining. Come hang!
