Though singers and SA legends Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender are up in the great tejano gig in the sky, Doug’s son Shawn Sahm and Nunie Rubio have stepped in to continue the Tornados tear across South Texas. While many see Texas as a hyper-diverse musical landscape, singer-songwriter Joe King Carrasco isn't too interested in choosing a single direction. And that’s what makes him so refreshingly unpredictable; from country to rock-n-roll, tequila-soaked reggae to a sped-up polka that became nueva wave, Carrasco has consistently refused to sit still. Heavily influenced by the Tex-Mex sounds of San Antonio, particularly the Sir Douglas Quintet and Sunny Ozuna, Carrasco has taken their formula to incredible (and often very successful) lengths. $20, 8pm, Luckenbach Dance Hall, 412 Luckenbach Town Loop, (830) 997-3224—Matt Stieb, James Courtney
