The Kessler has a Valentines Day show. Daphne Willis, Madison King and Ruby Jane perform tonight, Feb. 14. And then Oak Cliff’s own Ray Wylie Hubbard performs Friday, Feb. 15. Hubbard performed “Mother Blues” on Late Night with David Letterman last month, and he also performed “Screw You We’re from Texas,” after the show, at Dave’s request, and it was awesome. Go see him. He loves Oak Cliff.

Here’s a chance to mark it off your list. The show runs at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15-16. Tickets cost $10 in advance or $20 at the door.
