Louisiana's notorious Angola prison has rarely, if ever, been mentioned in the same sentence as Star Wars, yet both have found their way into Sam Riggs' live shows. "Fields of fear stretched far and wide, and razor wire goes to the sky," sings the Texas singer-songwriter on "Angola's Lament." After the show, fans can head to his merch table to find unauthorized Star Wars-themed beer koozies. "I've been waiting on a cease-and-desist order," Riggs recently told Rolling Stone, which favorably compared his country-rock music to that of Garth Brooks and Ray Wylie Hubbard. You can catch Riggs at 7 tonight at the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., for $12 in advance, $14 at the door. — Bill Forman
