Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Texas Plant/Blackgrass Baptism/Time Cat/Thoreau Hawk

When: Thu., Aug. 15, 9 p.m. 2013

Texas Plant, a local folk-punk group that prides itself on the ability to be able to play street corners as well as bars, just came together in January of this year. But the band is already getting gigs in Pittsburgh and Columbus and its debut album is slated for release in the fall. “I’ve played in other bands with the other guys in the group for years,” says singer Matthew Leeb. “But we just wanted something more minimal. We didn’t want to have to use any electricity.” “Ain’t For Me Babe” and “Little Jimmy” are raucous tunes that have a classica Americana sound but are a lot rougher around the edges than something you’d hear by Wilco or the Jayhawks. For this show, expect to hear most of the forthcoming album as well as a Willie Nelson cover the group has been working into the mix. (Jeff Niesel)
