Tom Freund, Garrett T. Capps 

After working with reggae rocker Ben Harper and alt-country band The Silos, Tom Freund struck out on his own with his debut in 1998, North American Long Weekend. With acclaim from NPR and the New York Times, Freund’s charming acoustic rock has proven to be quite worthy of the screen too, with soundtrack appearances on Dawson’s Creek, Parenthood, One Tree Hill and This Is 40. On Garrett Capps’ “San Antone,” the cagey songwriter pins down Alamo City musical culture with verve and an insider’s knowledge: “I found myself down a deep, dark road / empty pockets and a wayward soul / then I heard somethin’ on the radio / sounded like San Antone. / It had deep blues roots, and a Vox organ / a groovy shaker, and a Fender tone / it said ‘she’s about a mover’ and I was gone / gone home to San Antone.” $7-$30, 7pm, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E Grayson, (210) 223-2830
