Joe Ely and The Mavericks Live on The Plaza Saturday

Just in case you haven't heard (because you live in a cave and only read this blog), there's a free show on The Santa Fe Plaza Saturday night (tomorrow! Sept. 19) featuring Joe Ely and The Mavericks.

And yes, I said FREE.

The show starts with Ely's set at 6:30 p.m. The Mavericks come on at 8 p.m.

This event is part of  St Vincent’s Hospital Foundation's 150th Anniversary. Hey, it's better than a night in the hsopital (and lots cheaper).

Also Saturday night, don't forget The Sons of Royalty are playing right down the street at Skylight, 139 W. San Francisco St. starting at 7 p.m. I wrote about this in last week's Terrell's Tuneup. Tickets are $20 and it's a benefit for  La Luz de Santa Fe Family Shelter.

Here's a video of Ely doing a Robert Earl Keen song on Austin City Limits.
