Django untamed
A guitarist who learned his craft in gypsy campsites scattered across the French countryside sounds like the stuff of myths, but Stephane Wrembel’s colorful beginnings define his artistic career. His fifth album, Origins, was released last year and finds him reaching into that history to incorporate a broader palette of sound into his music. Though his reputation as a French musician has paid off—Woody Allen even recruited him to compose the score for his recent rom-com Midnight in Paris—Wrembel shows no signs of limiting himself as he blends flamenco, blues, and rock into a work of jazz impressionism.

Wednesday 3/13 $12, 8pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
