Shelby Lynne Rated Highly By Askmen.com

Lonesome Onry and Mean came across this odd little item today when Googling Shelby Lynne prior to  this evening's show in Warehouse Live's studio. Now, LOM makes no pretensions that we are privy to Lynne's private life in any way, but based on what we think we know, finding an item like this on askmen.com just strikes us as... well... a bit kinky. Or something. Hopefully we won't be getting a visit from the HPD vice squad tonight.

Anyway, whatever the site may have to say about Lynne - and we'll bet five to one the singer doesn't give a damn what it has to say about her "sexy factor" - what we know is that the last time the Alabama-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter played Houston, it was an absolutely exquisite musical evening. Her band consisted of aces, Lynne was engaging and funny and hip, and the crowd was completely mesmerized by the beauty of the performance.

London crooner Findlay Brown will open the show. Brown, who records for major UK label Verve Forecast, favors the lush pop sounds of old-school singers like Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers, Gene Pitney and Elvis. Paired with the mercurial Ms. Lynne, this should be one helluva Tuesday-night musical soiree.

8 p.m. at Warehouse Live (studio), 813 St. Emanuel, 713-225-5483 or www.warehouselive.com.
