Joe Ely, who this month released “Panhandler Rambler,” considered one of his most personal albums, will bring his west Texas style of rock ’n’ roll to Sacramento. In his new album, Ely pays homage to the gritty terrain that gave voice to the likes of Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and many more. 7 p.m., Tuesday, Harlow’s, 2708 J St., Sacramento. $25
