Sept. 6 The Courtyard Texas Music Series presents The Statesboro Revue. The Statesboro Revue goes back to 2008, but the evolving vision of front man and primary songwriter Stewart Mann goes back much further. It's a journey down many roads from Texas to Tennessee to California and back, all in a search for that perfect, unspoiled place for his music to grow roots. Year after year in city after city, it became clear that those roots had taken hold on stage and from there grew into a groove oriented, old school rock and roll band, the likes of which have not been seen in quite some time. See them at the Courtyard Theater, 1509 H Ave. Information: www.plano.gov.

The Rustic The Rustic is a place where anyone can feel at home. Enjoy authentic local beers, wines, and spirits served by a friendly staff. Listen to live music from local and national artists. And take it all in from a phenomenal patio, under the big Texas sky. The Rustic is located at 3656 Howell St. Information: therustic.com.
