10/23: Jackie Venson plays Sunday at One-2-One Bar.
Jackie Venson performs at her CD release party at the Skylark Lounge

One of the city’s great undersung talents, emerging blues phenom Venson brings sensitive artistry to her guitar work that is best experienced live. She excels on the electric, making her six-strings sing like a voice, but we’re confident her formidable skills will shine even in an unplugged set. Consider this free show a lovely end of summer get-together for the whole family.

Additional parking is available at Bicycle Sports Shop on South Lamar Boulevard.

Details: 8 p.m. Thursday. Free. Shady Grove, 1624 Barton Springs Road. Kgsr.com.
