Dale Watson

8 p.m. Sunday, January 23. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

With his graying, pomade-stiffened pompadour, sprawling and fading tattoos, silver-dollar-and-leather-appointed Telecaster and baritone voice of heartbreaking plasticity, Dale Watson is the epitome of the honky-tonk lion in winter. He has survived four decades on the road, rumors of retirement and the cold hard facts of death and despair — and simply does what a country artist will do: dust off the boots and two-step through the wreckage one more time. On last year's under-appreciated album Carryin' On, the Lone Star icon enlists Nashville's greatest living session men — including Lloyd Green, Pete Wade and Hargus "Pig" Robbins — and tells it as it is: People cheat, lie, drink and dance — and a good country song, a pedal steel guitar and an honest voice can make all clichés new again.
