And the hit bookings just keep coming at Tricky Falls.
First and foremost, trippy experimental rockers Grizzly Bear have been booked to play there at 8 p.m. April 11.
The band is touring behind newest album "Shields," released last year. Two of its songs were recorded in Marfa, where the Brooklyn band relocated temporarily (though it ended up scrapping most of the songs from those sessions).
Tickets for the show are $26 in advance, plus service charges, $30 day of show.
They go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 25 at Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com and 800.745.3000.
A small number of advance tickets will be for sale, at no extra charge, at the club and the Bowie Feathers bar upstairs, but co-owner Bobbie Welch wasn't sure when those tickets would come in.
Meanwhile, did you know that Joe Ely's manager, Lance Webb, lives in Marfa?
He's routed his client, one of the most gifted and original songwriters Texas has produced since Willie Nelson, for an acoustic show at 8 p.m. March 21 at Tricky Falls.
It will be Ely's first show in the area since he and accordionist Joel Guzman joined Garrison Keillor for a live broadcast of "A Prairie Home Companion" at NMSU's Pan Am Center in 2008.
It's probably Joe's first show here in many years. I saw him many times during my years in Lubbock in the late '70s. The only time I ever saw him in El Paso was when he opened for the Clash at the Chavez Theatre in 1983, when a teenaged Charlie Sexton was playing guitar in his band.
Ely, who records solo and with the Flatlanders, will perform here with highly touted guitarist Jeff "Plank" Plankenhorn, who also plays lap steel and dobro and has worked with Eliza Gilkyson, Slaid Cleeves, Gavin DeGraw and the Courtyard Hounds, the side band of Dixie Chicks siblings Emily Robison and Marty McGuire.
Those tickets are $19, on sale Jan. 23 on holdmyticket.com and Jan. 25 at All That Music & Video, Bowie Feathers, Eloise and Maria's Closet.
Also, the club has booked Austin garage rockers the Heartless Bastards for 8 p.m. March 22 and a solo acoustic set from indie rock vet Jeff Mangum (known for his work with Neutral Milk Hotel, the Olivia Tremor Control, Elephant 6 and Apples in Stereo)for 8 p.m. March 30.
HB tickets are $13, on sale Jan. 23 at the same outlets as the Ely show.
Tickets for Mangum's show are $25, on sale Jan. 23 at the same outlets.
The press-shy singer, described as bearded and with long grey hair in a recent Houston Press review, is adamant about no photos being allowed at the show.
He's donating $1 from each ticket sold will go to Children of the Blue Sky, a nonprofit that finds foster families for street orphans in Mongolia.
