All Spaced Out

By: Laurie Gallardo

Perhaps you’ve done more than your fair share of spacing out during quarantine. This will be even better.

Austin-based songwriter and musician Gary Newcomb, known throughout the universe as Sweet Gary, has shared various bits of pedal-steel magic throughout the COVID madness, everything from a song inspired by his love for red wine (since replaced by an admiration for a good pilsner, if it’s on hand), a flower-inspired piece or two, and some generally badass noodling. This week, Newcomb presents a special livestream performance featuring improvised instrumentals on the ol’ twelve-string that could fly in any direction.

Catch Sweet Gary’s Thursday Space Out, starting at 7 p.m. tomorrow night, Thursday August 20, on his Facebook and Instagram.
