Few musicians are lucky enough to have their first album was produced by John Mellencamp, but American folk-rock singer James McMurtry is one of them. Son of acclaimed author Larry McMurtry, he has been churning out albums for nearly 25 years. His song “We Can't Make It Here” holds a spot in the cannon of American protest songs, receiving the honor of Best Song of the 2000s by renowned music critic Robert Christgau. Bonus: Texan musician Carrie Rodriguez is also performing. Sat 8 p.m.
