One of my all time favorite musicians is Ryan Adams. I don't know how many times I've said that to someone and they turn back puzzled, "Bryan Adams?" I mean, when I was a little girl, Bryan Adams was inescapable on FM radio. It felt like he did an epic love song for every '80s movie -- in reality, it was probably just that Robin Hood song. Funnily enough, Ryan and Bryan actually discovered they share the same birthday and joined each other on stage last year to quash any beef their fans had created between the two. Tonight, Bryan Adams will be at the Open Air Theatre and you can be sure to catch all of those old hits. Meanwhile, around town, Danny Black, of Good Old War, plays tonight at the Merrow, our buddies Omega Three play at the Casbah and "Austin angst-punkers" Crooked Bangs play a rare Monday night show at Whistle Stop.
