To do tonight: Pokey LaFarge at Thunderbird

So. It's almost the end of the workday. You're not sure what you're getting into tonight. It's Wednesday night, which, of course, is drinking-and-going-to-see-live-music night in your life.

Here's an idea: Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three play Thunderbird Cafe (4023 Butler St., Lawrenceville). The Midwest-born, St. Louis-based old-timey Americana musician is on Jack White's Third Man label and, as our friends at the Riverfront Times note, looks kind of like "a hobo Pee-Wee Herman."

Don't take all this from us -- check out a track from Pokey's new full-length, Middle of Everywhere here: So Long, Honeybee, Goodbye.

Show starts at 9, costs $7, and the Shelf Life String Band opens.
