'Big Apple BBQ Presents Dale Watson+Guitar Shorty'
Austin alt-country singer Dale Watson is interested in authenticity. Beloved in Europe, possibly because his smirking brand of self-aware Western is a little too meta for American crowds, Watson's talk-friendly tracks such as "Sit, Drink and Cry" and "Country? My Yass!!!" bites the hand that feeds him with a groan for every line. This sunny Saturday, he'll play the free Big Apple BBQ with galvanizing blues six-stringer Guitar Shorty. Come for the burgers, stay for the spectacle.
