Seeing local music is always on the list of what we search for when we arrive in a city. And when it’s combined with a local hotspot? We’re definitely there!
Padre’sis one of three bars in Marfa (only two of which were open when we visited. The other, Planet Marfa, is a seasonal bar.).
And it certainly was local! Everyone seemed to know everyone, and even the band seemed to be consisted of a few locals jamming together, rather than any serious musical intent.
SCORK was the local band on the night we visited – a one night behind, we came to find out, headed by Sarah Cork (hence the name).
Singing Loretta Lynn and other country/blues/folk covers, she had the bar crowd (made up of her friends and family) chanting “SCORK! SCORK! SCORK!”.
She was followed by Nakia, apparently a contest on the tv show ‘The Voice’.
We had a fantastic time at the bar – drinks, dancing, all in a dimly lit atmosphere. And there are games galore in the back – pinball, etc.
Writing, eating, loving, laughing, and enjoying where life takes me.
