Texan singer-songwriter Hayes Carll hails from The Woodlands, a tony suburb of Houston. His work is sometimes dark and always catchy and literate. When he’s not performing, he’s that guy sitting in a dimly lit corner of a peanut shell-littered bar, scribbling furiously by the light of one of those scarlet lowboy candles. Americana and blues-rock two-step like nobody’s business in his warm, sarcastic and witty tunes. Carll rocks the Dirty Bourbon Western Dance Hall and Saloon (9800 Montgomery NE) on Sunday, April 21, along with Austinite bluegrass/country/folk outfit Warren Hood and The Goods. This 21-and-over hootenanny revs up at 8 p.m., and admission is $17.
