Boxers have a penchant for making comebacks. So do musicians. Paul Thorn will make his third appearance at the Cargo Concert Hall on Friday, July 21. Tickets go on sale March 10. The seated show is for concertgoers 18 and older. Advance tickets are $25. The price is $30 on the day of the show, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of Thorn’s album “Hammer and Nail.” Thorn recently re-released the album after he acquired the rights from his former record label. A resident of Tupelo, Mississippi, Thorn’s sound straddles the line between country and blues. He is a gifted and entertaining storyteller. “Hammer and Nail” includes the tunes “Joanie, The Jehovah Witness Stripper” and “Double Wide Paradise.” Former world champion boxer Roberto “Hands of Stone” Duran convinced Thorn to pursue a musical career in 1988 by knocking him out (TKO) in the sixth round in a nationally televised bout.
