The Avenue Café is becoming known for its Americana-punk shows thanks to Steve King. The café’s event manager has a knack for bringing in banjowielding troubadours from across the country. King’s next frenetic-folk show is Friday. Headlining is the Handog Hearts, the rootsy one-man-band project of Indianapolis-based singer/songwriter Austin Stirling. The Hangdog Hearts started as a full band in 2012, but Stirling quickly stripped it down to a solo project and honed his soulful “angry-Gypsy-folk” sound. Its latest release is 2013’s “Under the Floorboards.” Openers at the Avenue are Brother Doug and songwriter James Hunnicutt, a Farmageddon Records artist. Over the years, Hunnicutt, a Washington state native, has recorded or played with a number of rustic-roots bands including Joe Buck Yourself, the Goddamn Gallows and Shooter Jennings, to name only a few.
