Marcia Ball 

When: Sat., June 23, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $18-26

Marcia Ball's hometown of Orange rests squarely on the border of Texas and Louisiana, which is as perfect a geocultural metaphor as could be imagined for her music. Though the New Orleans-centric aspects of her soulful piano playing and sweet-meets-sassy singing have tended to get the most attention, Ball first made a name for herself in early-1970s Austin while fronting one of that city's proto-hippie/ country bands. More than a dozen solo albums later, Ball remains at the top of her game, as her Grammy-nominated 2011 disc Roadside Attractions attests. The $18–$26 show starts at 8 p.m.; come at 6:30 for gumbo, red beans & rice and pecan tarts served up in the lobby by the Papa Mojo's folks. —Peter Blackstock
