Glad You Asked: Galactic, Carrie Rodriguez and The Ruby Suns



Dear GYA, Lately, I've been thinking I should change my name for professional reasons. I guess I need something edgy and fun, yet sharp and distinguished -- a name that commands respect, something like ... Steak Laserdisk or Queso LeBeef. Is there anything happening today where I can test out some of these names in real-life situations? - Gary Herbert , SLC---

Gary, Why would you want to change your name? Gary is a good, solid name. I do like Queso LeBeef, though. Here are a few things happening today:

New Orleans funk band Galactic will be performing at The Depot, alongside Quannum funk and R&B stalwarts Latyrx, Lyrics Born and Lateef the Truthspeaker.  Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. 

Austin-based fiddler Carrie Rodriguez will be onstage at The State Room. Jeff Crosby is also on the bill. Doors open at 8 p.m Tickets are $12. 

Indie-pop band The Ruby Suns will be at Kilby Court tonight. Doors open at 9. Tickets are $9.
