I was invited to a friend’s wedding several years ago—in Texas. I still regret not being in attendance. Not only was the groom a close friend, but Austin’s legendary, and now sadly defunct, Bad Livers also were his wedding-party band. Fast-forward to 2007 and the leader of the Bad Livers, banjo phenomenon Danny Barnes, is making an appearance in my own backyard! The multitalented Greg Leisz—an able pedal-steel player who’s accompanied Paul Westerberg, Brain Wilson, Wilco, and Paul Cole—will join him at the Palms Playhouse, located at 13 Main Street in Winters. The show starts loosely around 8 p.m. on Wednesday, January 24. Tickets are just $15. I won’t make the same mistake twice; I’ll be there this time.
