Rainbows and Ridges

By: Laurie Gallardo

For some new (or younger) fans, their introduction to Blaze Foley may have been the 2018 film Blaze, with actor/musician Ben Dickey portraying the enigmatic songwriter. For others, Sybil Rosen‘s incredible memoir/biography, Living in the Woods in a Tree, offering a candid look at their time together, might have given more insight into who the songwriter was and how he developed his craft.

Ultimately, there’s no denying it’s the music. And, though not widely-known when he passed away more than thirty years ago, Foley became a Texas legend with a far-reaching influence that carries on to this day.

This evening, local music artists will pay homage to the poet and master finger-picker with A Tribute To Blaze Foley: The Duct Tape Messiah. Jacob Jaeger, Jimmie Dreams, Austin duo Warm Sugar and others will perform some of their favorite Foley songs, starting at 7 p.m. tonight, Monday Nov. 9, at The Far Out Lounge, 8504 S. Congress Ave.
