Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 11.3.11



.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

There’s something familiar, in a palatable, comfort-food kind of way, about a good old Southern singer-songwriter excelling at his craft. Mississippi native Cory Branan twists his lyrics inventively and tells stories that are sometimes hilarious and sometimes classic but never cliché. If his voice sounds familiar, it might be because he sang the background lyrics in Lucero’s “Sweet Little Thing” and his song “Watermark” is the closing credits on Lucero’s Bright Stars on Lonesome Nights DVD. This week is a great time to catch Branan with EW Next Big Thing winner Betty & the Boy. Cory Branan plays Cozmic Pizza 8pm Sunday. $5-$7.
