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
