Weekend watch: Barbara Jean and David Huckfelt at The GastropubTonight
Typically the sights and sounds at The Gastropub at Fargo Billiards, 3234 43rd Street S., Fargo, are related to the scores of pool tables or any of the TVs around the giant space. The venue is making a push to also be viewed as a music destination with a string of singer/songwriter type shows.
Kicking things off tonight is emerging Americana artist Barbara Jean of Grand Marais, Minn. The singer/banjo-player is joined by singer/guitarist David Huckfelt of the Minneapolis-based The Pines. Jean recently performed on NPR’s “Mountain Stage Radio Show,” sharing the spotlight with Trampled by Turtles and Low.This ID-only show is free. Music starts at 8 p.m. with Diane Miller opening.
