…And There’s More

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s easy to get carried away with so much happening this weekend – which is why there’s a lot of info on today’s Austin Music Minute. You’ve got ACL Festival selections for tonight, Friday Oct. 8, and tomorrow afternoon, Saturday Oct. 9, along with some very cool alternatives if you’re avoiding Zilker Park.

If you’re making the festival rounds this evening: Black Pumas start their set at 6 p.m. on the Lady Bird stage, with George Strait following at 8 p.m.; Eryka Badu plays the Miller Lite stage at 7 p.m.

If the fest is not for you tonight, you’ve got Tameca Jones (“Gimme That” is featured on today’s AMM) and Go Fever at The Continental Club, 1513 S. Congress Ave; Dylan Meek and Kelsey Wilson (Sir Woman) at Radio Coffee and Beer, 4204 Menchaca Rd.; and KUTX October Artist of the Month Money Chicha at The Far Out Lounge and Stage, 8504 S. Congress Ave., with Nemegata.

Tameca Jones plays The Continental Club, Fri. Oct. 8, with Go Fever.


The AMM’s short list for ACL Fest tomorrow afternoon includes Mike Melinoe, Jade Bird, The Tender Things, Girl In Red, LP Giobbi, La Doña, Charley Crocket, and Phoebe Bridgers. Okay, maybe a not-so-short list…

*As always, check venue/event websites for safety protocol, and wherever you go for live music, please remember to bring your mask.

What’s Yr Damage

Following the breakup of their previous psych-gaze band Creepoid, Anna and Patrick Troxell forged an electro post-punk dynamic as the duo Lovelorn. And now the ATX-by-way-of Philly outfit is ramping things up with two new additions to the line-up, guitarists Steve Pike and Kyle Harris. No doubt extra shreds will add even more discordant dimensions […]
