Texas troubadours

What band plays a mix of folk, country and bluegrass, counts Frank Zappa and George Jones as influences and wears shirts with prints as wacky as their satirical songs? It’s none other than the Austin Lounge Lizards, who celebrate their 25th anniversary this month. The quirky quintet perform 8 p.m. Jan. 7-8 at the Celebrity Showroom at John Ascuaga’s Nugget, 1100 E. Nugget Ave., Sparks. Tickets are $18. Call 356-3300.—Kelley Lang
