5:30pm at Isis Music Hall
Ben De La Cour brings to mind a young Townes Van Zandt. He shares a similarly cynical worldview and world-weary, rakish persona, and sings in an assured baritone that he would probably prefer was fueled by quality bourbon, although rotgut might do the job in a pinch. And as he makes clear from the git-go, he’s no stranger to being in a pinch.

($20 adv / $25 DOS)
Halloween Show! While singing his own hilariously politically incorrect songs, Unknown Hinson plays guitar in a style incendiary enough to have Satan himself reaching for the antiperspirant. But don't dismiss him as a novelty act. He's one hell of a talent and has the music to prove it! Unknown is gaining international notoriety in the 14-34 demographic as the voice of lead character "Early Cuyler" in the Cartoon Network's "Squidbillies".
