Joe Ely

When: Fri., April 21, 7 p.m. 2017

Lubbock-born Joe Ely’s musical resume is pretty badass. Touring with The Clash (and singing backup on their monumental single “Should I Stay or Should I Go”) in the late 70s with his band The Flatlanders, Ely has been an active in the rock and country communities for almost half a century. His solo work seems to have been garnering him the most attention though, especially on his 2015 release Panhandle Rambler, which has solidified his place as a true Texas icon with his reflective and very Texas-sounding singer-songwriter songs.

Price: $20-$70
