His robust baritone has earned this Texas troubadour the nickname “Big Velvet,” as evidenced on tracks like “Holy Ghost Fire” and “Cocaine Country Dancing.” Paul Cauthen preaches at 191 Toole. Pop rock singer Anna Rose sets the tone… Whether it’s funk, disco, rock or early new wave, DJ Carl Hanni drops the needle on ’70s timebombs. At The Libertine… Lookout Tucson Jazz Concert Series sees Parisian guitarist Gabriel Naim Amor and jazz vocalist Katherine Byrnes performing a mix of standards, French classics and original compositions. In the Lookout Bar & Grille at Westward Look Resort… Boots & Balls Thursday [use your imagination] sees this award-winning fiddler transform from a mild-mannered Clark Kent into a Southwestern country rock Superman. Billy Shaw Jr. Band perform at The Maverick… Playing bossa novas, ballads and blues, The Jed Paradies Trio swing at The Coronet… Heavy metallists Sea of Treachery and Decayer wreak havoc at the House of Bards… Nashville music crusader Virginia Cannon presents a Thursday Night Singer-Songwriter Showcase. Six performers, four original songs, taking turns round robin. At Monterey Court… Taking you Deeper, DJs Atom Energy and LunarFluxx drop a motherlode of house. At Bar Passé… Drawing from a repertoire of acoustic originals and Americana covers, Mark Insley with guitarist Damon Barnaby are Arizona’s Most Wanted. At Iron John’s Brewing Company–Congress… Cameron Hood, one half of award-winning alt-folk duo Ryanhood, performs at Tap + Bottle–Downtown. Songwriter Paul Opocensky opens the show… Hark! The Queens are Coming: A drag extravaganza. At The Dusty Monk Pub… “Surf rock at its most offensive.” These kaiju-themed surf rock revivalists bring music, chaos and fire, literally, wherever they may roam. Daikaiju blitz Sky Bar…
