Shooter Jennings

Outlaw country icon Shooter Jennings is coming to the Cavalier Theater in La Crosse for a July 13 concert.

Tickets are on sale for a slew of upcoming summer concerts at the Cavalier Theater, including a July 13 Shooter Jennings show announced Tuesday.

Jennings, the son of Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, has put out seven studio albums of mostly outlaw country/country rock since his debut album in 2005, after dabbling in rock for a few years fronting a band called Stargunn. His eighth studio album, to be titled “Shooter,” will be released on Dave Cobb’s Low Country Sound label.

In addition to performing and recording his own work, Jennings also has produced records for other bands and since 2005 has hosted “Shooter Jenning’s Electric Rodeo” on Sirius XM’s Outlaw Country Station.

Tickets for the Jennings show, which also will feature Alex Williams, are $23 in advance, $25 at the door.

Coming up on June 14, the Cavalier will host a concert by Trevor Hall, an eclectic singer-songwriter who was tapped as one of the best new artists by MTV and Music Connection magazine after his 2009 self-titled debut album. His most recent album, 2015’s “KALA,” was the final chapter in a trilogy focusing on a spiritual and musical journey that saw him studying under a classical Baul musician, long retreats in the mountains and a devotion to spiritual practice and service. Tickets for the Hall show are $30 in advance, $35 at the door.

On Aug. 10, renowned Americana artist Pokey LaFarge will perform at the Cavalier. Known for a fresh but retro sound informed by everything from early jazz and ragtime blues to early country and rockabilly, La Farge has won Best Americana Album honors from the Independent Music Awards for two of his eight releases. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door.

Other notable shows for the summer announced so far include roots-rock sister duo Larkin Poe on June 20 ($20 in advance, $22 at the door), the High on Honky Tonk tour featuring Ward Davis, Sunny Sweeney and Tennessee Jet on Aug. 22 ($20 or four for $60 in advance, $25 at the door), and the return of Onalaska-raised comedian Shane Mauss, who will mark his 20-year high school reunion with a special show on July 27 ($10 in advance, $15 at the door).

All these shows are all ages, except for the Shane Mauss show, which is restricted to 21 and older. Advance tickets can be purchased at People’s Food Co-op and Deaf Ear Records or online at

In addition to shows in the main theater, the Cavalier also has a couple shows scheduled in the lounge so far, including Two Cow Garage on June 4 ($5 cover) and “A Night of Unusual Musical Entertainments” on June 6 with the main attractions including a San Francisco-based one-man surrealist rock act called The Slow Poisoner, Zobin and The Boyle Johnson Sex Funeral (no cover charge but donations will be collected for the musicians).

The Cavalier’s summer Alley Stage series kicks off May 18 with a show including The Deathless Dogs, This Could Be the Day, Floyd Turbo and Something Familiar, followed by a May 19 show featuring Tragic Americans, Returning the Favor, One More Onion and The Worst.

More details on shows at the Cavalier can be found on the venue’s Facebook page.
