WING SPUR BENEFIT WITH KINKY FRIEDMAN
Friday 8 p.m. Argenta Community Theater. $30.
Saturday 8 p.m. White Water Tavern. $30.

You've gotta love ol' Kinky Friedman. With his band The Texas Jewboys, he cut a number of left-field country albums, racking up satirical classics like "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in Bed" and "They Ain't Makin' Jews like Jesus Anymore."

The perpetually cigar-chomping entertainer has also penned a raft of detective novels, an etiquette guide and collections of assorted other writings (best book title: "Kill Two Birds and Get Stoned"). Oh yeah, and then there was his 2006 run for governor of Texas, which surely produced some of the finest campaign slogans never to be focus-grouped to death, among them "How Hard Could it Be?" and "My Governor is a Jewish Cowboy."

The Kinkster is also a kind-hearted friend of the animals, having founded Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch over there in Medina, Texas. He also serves on the board of the nonprofit Wing Spur Wild Horses, a sanctuary for a group of wild Mustangs located out at Wye Mountain. These two concerts are fundraisers for Wing Spur, so you can get some entertainment and know that you're helping a good cause as well. Oh, and the tickets are tax deductible, if you're so inclined.
