Josh Abbott Band
Friday, doors open at 8 p.m.
Abbott didn't even begin writing songs until around 2004, when he was still in grad school at Texas Tech in Lubbock. A diehard Texas country fan, he'd picked up guitar a few years earlier, mainly to strum along to his favorite Pat Green songs. He vividly recalls the epiphany he had at a concert one night at Lubbock's Blue Light when the notion of writing and playing his own music - maybe even for a living - first took root.
