If you want to know what Texas sounds like, listen to the music of the late Doug Sahm. He was a musician who could play every form of indigenous form of Texas music authentically, and his connections to Houston run long and deep. There's a new documentary chronicling Doug's music. Sir Doug and the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove is part of the eight-day multi-venue Houston Cinema Arts Festival.

Sir Doug and the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove screens tonight (Nov. 13, 2015) at 6:15 at Sundance Cinemas on Texas Avenue. The evening includes a Q-and-A session with director Joe Nick Patoski.
