Holly Golightly, with Tom Heinl

Sunday, August 7, at Rudyard's, 2010 Waugh Drive, 713-521-0521.

British garage-folk-pop-blues savant Billy Childish casts a long shadow. But Holly Golightly is more than just his protégée, even though she started her career playing the Childish-penned songs of Thee Headcoatees. Like her mentor, she's implausibly prolific, spewing studio albums, live albums, EPs and singles at a breakneck pace since her 1995 solo debut, Good Things. And like Childish, Golightly is mostly inspired by sounds a decade or two on either side of the birth of rock and roll: country-blues, girl groups, '60s beat, folk rock and sophisticated pop. Still, her own catchy songs and winning persona owe nothing to anyone -- with the possible exception of Truman Capote.
