If you're into song swaps by serious writers, today's Troubadour Tuesdays happy-hour show at House of Blues should be right up your alley. KPFT disc jockey Rick Heysquierdo has just announced that Mike Stinson will be sharing the stage with Oklahoma folk rocker Jubal Lee Young.
Young's newest record, The Last Free Place In America, is his first to ever penetrate the Freeform Americana Radio charts, making it to No. 30 in its first week. Young is in the area for three weeks of gigs at various venues and house concerts, including this past weekend's Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival.
Mike Stinson, "Take Out the Trash"
This will be the third installment of Heysquierdo's monthly second Tuesday series. The series opened at Jimmy Wilson's restaurant on San Felipe, but moved last month to the more centrally located House of Blues. Drinks and food are half price during happy hour.
Next month's performer is John Evans.
5 p.m. today at House of Blues, 1204 Caroline, 888-402-5837 or www.hob.com/houston.
