Call it prodigal sons week: James McMurtry (son of author Larry) follows Elvis Perkins (son of actor Anthony) as singer/songwriters with famous fathers to play One Eyed Jacks in the past week. The latest of James' eight LPs of Texas-set country rock, 2008's Just Us Kids (Lightning Rod) features a takedown of Bush 43 ("Cheney's Toy") that should've been titled "Loathsome W." Tickets $10 advance purchase, $12 day of show.
