Drawing comparisons to Lyle Lovett (aural, mind you — not visual),
indie-folk rocker Jay Nash visits The Blue Door, 2805 N. McKinley, at 7
p.m. Thursday, opening for David Ramirez. Nash’s brand-new album is
Letters from the Lost, and critics suggest you’ll not want to mark them
“return to sender.” Tickets are $15-$20. Call 524-0738 or visit
Hailing from Austin, Texas, “the crazy, thinking man’s blues band” known as Churchwood brings its musical mojo at 9 p.m Thursday at VZD’s Restaurant & Club, 4200 N. Western. The act is better at playing than it is at thinking up album titles, the latest being Churchwood 2. Opening are Oklahoma City garage rockers Fire Bad! Call 524-4203 or visit vzds.com.
