Parker Millsap

A 22-year-old Okie with a staunch Elvis chin, Parker Millsap is a young man fully read-up in the spirit of old country. His voice has the grainy texture and explosiveness of saltpeter, wielding it like an expert drunk holds a knife in a bar fight. “Quite Contrary” is Millsap’s most perfect song to date. Inspired by the violence of fables that gets filtered out of the years, the tune is packed with quick-witted turns of the blade. “Hey diddle diddle, the cat’s on the moon and the folks got a lighter underneath the spoon,” sings Millsap, oozing emotion and wit. As versed as he is in the gutter life, Millsap can do the cleaned-up thing, too. On “Truck Stop Gospel,” a rockabilly fiction of a travelling preacher, Millsaps hits in the ballpark of radio country without losing any of his individuality. $10-$45, 8:30pm, Sam's Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson, (210) 223-2830
