If you hurry - and aren't stuck out in Katy somewhere - you can still catch Hayes Carll's 5:30 p.m. in-store at Cactus Music - by the way, congrats to Cactus owner Quinn Bishop and wife Meg on the birth of son Graham yesterday - before his show with Ray Wylie Hubbard at Sam Houston Race Park tonight. A little later on, local indie-rockers Paris Falls squeeze into Sig's Lagoon for a 7 p.m. show. - Chris Gray
Hayes Carll, "She Left Me for Jesus," live at Schuba's in Chicago
Paris Falls, "Shelter," live at last weekend's Secret Saturday festival at Shady Tavern
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
