Robert Earl Keen 

When: Wed., Jan. 20, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $26-$30
In his own weird way, Robert Earl Keen is as much of a Texas institution as the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders or anti-abortion zealotry, and considerably more ingratiating than either. Like his buddy Lyle Lovett, he’s part of the generation of Lone Star State country-folk singer-songwriters who emerged in the ’80s after learning at the feet of masters like Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt. And Keen has a mile-wide wise-ass streak that keeps him from ever getting overly earnest. —Jim Allen
