MP3 of the Day: Pickin' Party at McGonigel's Mucky Duck

Tonight's installment of the Mucky Duck's monthly Songwriters in the Round series might as well be co-sponsored by Under the Volcano. Taking the stools will be recent Houston transplant Mike Stinson and Lance Smith, who put on a graduate-level seminar in honky-tonk history and current events last Wednesday at the Bissonnet bar, and return September 2. And the female participants, singer-songwriters Lise Liddell and Teresa Kolo, have both logged time behind the microphone at Volcano's weekly no-cover live-music nights.

Stinson's "Take Out the Trash," about a different kind of garbage duty, first appeared on his 2005 album Jack of All Heartache. Smith's "She's Working" is from his Just a Taste EP, and Liddell's "Shake Me Raw" comes to us as a demo for her forthcoming LP due later this year. And Rocks Off would hate for Kolo to be left out of our little MP3 party, so here's a link to her MySpace page.

7:30 p.m., McGonigel's Mucky Duck, 2425 Norfolk, 713-528-5999 or
