I checked it out and he's right. Talking about living in Austin, Texas, Plant said:

So you can go to the Long Center [for the Performing Arts] and hear the opening of a great classical season – just stunning! – and then go around the corner and hear Junior Brown, who is stunning in his own way, too.
Brown plays at the Continental Club every Sunday night -- though he said that drive back to his home in Oklahoma every week gets pretty old.
