The Ives String Quar­tet, based in the San Fran­cisco Bay area, takes its name from the Amer­i­can icon­o­clast com­poser Charles Ives, but in this con­cert it presents mu­sic by an­other Amer­i­can it has cham­pi­oned, Quincy Porter — his Quar­tet No. 3, from 1930. Like Ives, Porter was a tough-minded Con­necti­cut na­tive and a grad­u­ate of Yale, where he even­tu­ally served on the fac­ulty.

Austin (by way of Ge­or­gia and Ten­nessee) singer-song­writer/ gui­tarist Pee­wee Moore brings some street cred to to­day’s over­sat­u­rated “out­law coun­try” sta­ble of young-buck singer-song­writ­ers. Earn­ing the out­law ti­tle takes ded­i­ca­tion to tour­ing, hard work, and orig­i­nal­ity, and Moore’s proven him­self a cham­pion of all three. Per­form­ing more than 200 gigs each year, he’s got the road, and the mu­sic, puls­ing through his veins. He also does a mean live ver­sion of Santa Fe res­i­dent Terry Allen’s 1979 Viet­nam War-themed heart­breaker bal­lad, “Blue Asian Reds (for Road­run­ner).” Catch Moore with his thee-piece band, The Aw­ful Dread­ful Snakes, at

8 p.m. Fri­day, Feb. 4, at Cow­girl BBQ (319 S. Guadalupe St., 982-2565). Tick­ets are $5 at the door.
