Northsiders listen up: Lubbock legend Joe Ely and his accordion-squeezing compadre Joel Guzman bring the Southwestern twang of this year's Live Cactus! to oversized coffeehouse Dosey Doe in The Woodlands tonight. (Tickets, with dinner included, are $64 and $54.)
Among many other things (Flatlanders, "The Road Goes on Forever," etc.) Ely was big pals with the Clash - they toured both the U.S. and Europe together, and Ely even sings backup vocals on Combat Rock hit "Should I Stay or Should I Go." That's him singing the Spanish lyrics starting in the second verse. Normally I'm not a big fan of these title-card "videos," but in this case I'm happy to make an exception - Chris Gray
