Blues on the Green: Charlie Mars, Quiet Company

Wednesday, Aug 6 8:00p

While singer-songwriter Charlie Mars has been spending an awful lot of time in Austin lately, his permanent residence is still in his hometown, Oxford, Miss. The string of frequent Central Texas appearances have helped him fill the downtime (and pay the rent) while recording his new album, “The Money,” at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, just outside El Paso. The bonus for Mars? “(I) get to be in one of America’s best (expletive) towns … hard to beat.” Quiet Company opens. — Deborah Sengupta Stith

From soaring sing-along powerpop opener “How Do You Do It” to infatuated love ballad “The Biblical Sense of the Word,” Quiet Company’s “Songs For Staying In” might just be the most adorable EP about knocking boots ever recorded.
