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

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.
