Hump Day Honky Tonkin'

My pal David W. and I finally made it over to the new Brentwood Tavern Wednesday night. Neither of us had food, but their patio overlooking scenic Burnet Road was a nice place for a pint. Unbeknownst to us, the Tavern officially closed at 10, but they let us hang around until 10:30. It seems like a nice neighborhood place, but I'll have to try the food there before giving them a total thumbs-up.

We went from the Tavern to Ginny's Little Longhorn, where Justin Trevino was playing his regular Wednesday night gig. Vocalist/bassist Trevino was joined by a steel guitarist and a drummer. The classic country trio's sound was fuller than you'd expect, and they had the tears in beers vibe down pat. Trevino's voice reminds me a bit of Don Walser, too. He's a worthy compliment to Dale Watson's long-time Thursday night stand at Ginny's.
