The debut film from Texas music writer Joe Nick Patoski, documentary Sir Doug and the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove tells the story of legendary musician Doug Sahm, whose Sir Douglas Quintet was described as "the best" among current rock bands by Bob Dylan in the mid-1960s. Throughout his long career, Sahm mixed Texas country with R&B, conjunto, blues and other forms to create an American roots music all his own, influencing generations of Texas musicians who followed in his footsteps.

Euclid Records and New Orleans Video Access Center will present the local debut of Sir Doug and the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove tonight, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the yard behind Euclid Records, 3301 Chartres Street in the Bywater. More info here and here.
