will be at the Continental Saturday, January 29. An origianl member of proto-punks Modern Lovers, Richman just keeps coming up with compelling social commentary delivered with massive tongue-in-cheek. And he's just plain entertaining.
The Duck has a very solid January calendar, beginning with two sets fromCharlie Robison
on the 13th.Darden Smith
share the stage on Jan. 14, and the versatileIan Moore
plays his Beatles-y rock on the 16th.
The last two weeks of January find a plethora of high-grade, rocking acts coming in for what purports to be a listening room:Willie Porter
(Jan. 21);Scott Miller
(Jan. 22, a Friday, so most likely young Miller will have his full band in tow); The Wylie Lama,Ray Wylie Hubbard
himself (Jan. 23), will be touring behind his new albumA. Enlightenment, B. Endarkenment, (Hint: There Is No C)
. The following week is just as stout, with Canadian songmeisterFred Eaglesmith
(Jan. 28); Austin pop-rocker
