Headliner Dale Watson's band is called the Lone Stars and he quickly pulled a bottle of Lone Star beer out of a pocket to quench his thirst at the Western Roundup on Friday night at the Adorni Center. His on-stage banter with the audience soon called for glasses of tequila from the bar, which fans happily delivered, but his alcohol-fueled performance of vintage country didn't seem to suffer.

Headliner in a long, well-performed set for the The Western Roundup on Friday night at the Adorni Center was Dale Watson and the Lone Stars. Watson has a well-deserved reputation as a creative song writer, singer and guitar player with a sense of humor in his well-rehearsed on-stage delivery.
