Americana/country chanteuse Shannon Whitworth has been making a name for herself with her smoky, sultry voice and distinct songwriting. Her new album, Water Bound, finds her really exploring her Americana and country roots, so much so that rumor has it she might try and revitalize Deadwood just before she finishes her last shot of whiskey and leaves her man. She can be seen at Joe’s Pub on Aug. 17 for the CD release party. All ages. $14. 9 p.m.
