Cactus Cafe Shows: Suzanna Choffel and Davíd Garza, The Sour Notes and more…
It’s an exciting time for the Cactus Cafe. There have been a lot of great musical performances there in the past several months.
The list is too long to put here in its entirety, but I’ve narrowed it down to a handful of outstanding gigs (with a little help from Cactus Cafe manager and my fellow El Paso homeboy Matt Munoz): Sahara Smith and Colin Gilmore; Hayes Carll – always brilliant, always funny and always mind-blowing, no matter what; Ghost of A Saber Tooth Tiger – I could scarcely wrap my brain around the very idea of being in the same room with Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl; Scottish band The Trashcan Sinatras bringing the house down; songwriter David Ramirez; Wil Cope and Jonathan Terrell; a packed room taking in every single second of Citizen Cope; and, of course, we must not forget tonight’s sold-out Civil Wars show.
It doesn’t end there. Lots more is on the horizon. Coming up: A double bill with Suzanna Choffel and Davíd Garza on Thursday night; Austin band The Sour Notes returns from touring to play Friday night; and a special set of performances by Matthew Ryan, Jeff Klein and Dawn Kinnard on Saturday night. There’s also a show at the end of the month that I’m already very excited about, featuring two of my favorite local bands: STEREO IS A LIE and White Dress play the Cactus on Friday July 29th.
