FRIDAY 9/13. 8 p.m., CALS Ron Robinson Theater. $25.
Western swing begs convincingly for a couple things: dancing and showing off. Hot Club of Cowtown — an Austin-based trio with fiddler/vocalist Elana James, guitarist/vocalist Whit James and vocalist/bassist Jake Erwin in its employ — traffic in a sort of hot jazz hoedown idiom. It’s gypsy jazz fit for a barn dance, but hey, Ron Robinson probably has less straw dust and better acoustics. This performance is part of the ACANSA Arts Festival of the South; see the full lineup here.
