Texas country singer-songwriter Max Stalling's been at it for years now, playing damn near every honky-tonk in Texas and releasing four studio albums over the past decade and change, all the while cultivating a smooth vocal style that separates him from many of his Texas peers while still writing the type of simple, striking country songs Nashville forgot about long ago. He just released his first live album, Sell Out: Live at Dan's Silverleaf, back in 2007, but apparently he's playing even bigger gigs now, as evidenced by the new Max Stalling: Live at the Granada DVD recorded last year. Wednesday night he returns to the scene of the crime for a party to celebrate the DVD's release. The show starts at 8 p.m.; The King Bucks and Blacktop Gypsy warm things up. Tickets are $12 to $25.
