Tonight: Peter and the Wolf and More at ArtStorm
Austin's Peter and The Wolf does road music. Not road music in the sense that Sammy Hagar did songs for the open road. Chief P&W songwriter Red Hunter's songs remind Rocks Off of walking down gravel roads, occasionally wiping sweat from our brow and meandering with no destination. Hunter's voice has the kind of wisp that brings to mind Elliott Smith and maybe even a less mournful Bon Iver.
P&W's latest, Mellow Owl, comes with hand-drawn one-of-a-kind artwork on each copy. Tonight, the group (9 p.m.) joins three of Houston's most folked-up buzz bands: the brassy listenlisten (8:15 p.m.), boy-girl duo sew what (10 p.m.), and already-venerable Wild Moccasins (7:30 p.m.). Did we mention ArtStorm is also touting free beer, hot cocoa, and a bonfire with the $5 price of admission?
So music, booze, fire, and chocolate? Can I legally marry a show? - Craig Hlavaty
