When: Mon., March 25, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $22-25

Ray Wylie Hubbard is one of Texas' greatest exports: Since the early '70s, he has mixed stomp blues with cosmic country and traditional folk, setting himself as an exemplar of Americana. "The Ballad of the Crimson Kings," a classic from his 1997 album Dangerous Spirits, mixes the psychedelic side of country with the blues. Rich in storytelling and steeped in grit, Hubbard's past few releases have found him at the top of his game. His latest,

Grifter's Hymnal, offers another classic in an already deep catalog. It also features an intriguing guest appearance by Beatle Ringo Starr on a cover of "Coochy Coochy." A legend, Hubbard does not make it to these parts very often; this is a must-see. —Dan Schram
