"These Shoes Are Made for Walking" Benefit

Nothing can give you a blistering case of the blues like a pair of ill-fitting shoes. For most of us, taking care of the problem is as simple as exchanging them. But when you're wearing battered hand-me-downs, returning them for a better fit is not an option. That's why the Musicians Benevolent Society of Houston and Project Row Houses are enlisting a few of the city's best blues and jazz artists for this benefit. Sherman Robertson, one of the country's finest blues/zydeco guitarists, headlines in a rare hometown club gig. Also appearing is Trudy Lynn, who has been a better singer than Koko Taylor for years and is an infinitely worthier candidate for America's Queen of the Blues. Add master keyboardist Morgan Bouldin and young jazz guitarist Joe Carmouche in and the lineup sounds as friendly, cool and comfortable as a broken-in pair of Converse All Stars. Free admission with a pair of new or lightly used shoes; $10 without.
