When the weather gets cold and the sky gets gray nothing sounds better than a mournful country song. For some pure, wonderful, not-always-so-sad country music, head to Mercy Lounge for Thad Cockrell tomorrow night (Thursday, 7). His residency with Roman Candle at the Basement a couple months ago was one of this year's musical highlights—every two weeks for two months there was a guarenteed evening of thoughtful, expert music. And Cockrell's voice has that special something, that edge of vulnerability and self-doubt that all the greats have. Don't beleive me, check it out for yourself.
