Café Bourbon Street hosts an evening of four talented singer-songwriters this Friday. Hopefully, the gray-haired set won't read past that first sentence, because even though it is completely true, the four in question aren't quite the coffeehouse troubadours one might expect. Winston Hightower comes across as a black, male Azalia Snail, Lisa Bella Donna is like a '70s four-track Vangelis and Grant Earl Lavalley is somewhere between Jeff Bridges' hobby rock and the outsider folk of Nicodemus. Val Glenn's Time and Temperature? Everybody loves that - even coffeehouse types.
