2012-05-21/27 Weekly LOVIEE

Not a whole lot this week but hopefully something for almost everyone. Most of the events aren’t scheduled until June; the monthly LOVIEE covers until mid-June this time around so I’ll be making late additions over the next few days.

Wednesday 05-23

Ray Wylie Hubbard/Mason Lankford, 111 W. Main (Tomball), show 7pm, $25 seated/$15 standing. 12-W21-1

Thursday 05-24

Greg Laswell/Elizabeth Ziman, Dosey Doe, 25911 Interstate 45 (Spring/The Woodlands), show 7pm, $12. Greg Laswell is a solo folk-rock act based in San Diego. Elizabeth Ziman is best known as lead singer of Elizabeth and the Catapult, one of those bands I knew I was going to love halfway into listening to one song; she is based in Brooklyn (NYC). (It is just Elizabeth, not the full band.) Local country/folk artist Shellee Coley is the opening act, whose performance is almost worth the price of admission by itself. 12-W21-2
