Brad Williams, brightly.
BRAD WILLIAMS/ AMY GARLAND8 p.m., Studio Joe.
Here's a rare gig for you. Brad Williams spends most of his time on stage leading everyone's favorite country-swing throwbacks the Salty Dogs
. In his spare time, he plays guitar in Big Silver. Which doesn't leave him much time to show off his mighty country tenor in solo gigs. Look for him to debut some new sketches of Salty Dogs songs. Some lost gems, too. Meanwhile, Amy Garland
has been M.I.A. of late. Long one of the area's finest singer/songwriters, she's been tied up with motherhood for what seems like a couple years. Here's hoping this marks her return to regular giggin'. Local guitar giant Nick Devlin, who plays in both the Salty Dogs and the Amy Garland Band, sits in with each performer. Look for a Williams/Garland/Devlin free-for-all at the end. Be sure to whoop loud a couple times. You'll want to distinguish yourself from the crowd, so you can hear yourself on the radio. KUAR is now airing live performances recorded at Studio Joe every Saturday at 9 p.m. Expect a cover charge somewhere in the $5 range.
