Fri 1/2
Marcia Ball

Since her first release, 1972’s Freda and the Firedogs, Marcia Ball has stitched together her musical identity like a quilt made from all the best of Texas and Lousiana sound. From her comfort zone, the blues, Ball has ventured into swamp-funk, boogie woogie, R&B and zydeco, all the while guided by her impressively versatile piano skills and her raspy, world-worn voice. Join her at the Aztec this Friday as she celebrates the release of her latest effort, the explosive, sassy and largely autobiographical album The Tattooed Lady and the Alligator Man. Local piano man Lucas Jack will open. $15-$22, 7pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N St Mary’s, (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com. —James Courtney
