Heat Turned Up

By: Laurie Gallardo

Today’s Austin Music Minute features a snippet of “First Began,” from the album Gumbo by the phenomenal PJ Morton. Seriously, stop what your doing and listen to his enticing rendition of The BeeGees“How Deep Is Your Love” on Gumbo Unplugged. I – said – damn.

Now imagine just how awesome it’ll be to see Morton performing live. You can, as a matter of fact, during this year’s Hot Luck Festival, an entire Memorial Day weekend’s worth of chef-prepared culinary delights, and an aural smorgasbord of live music.

Your mouth’s watering. Good. Get started tonight with performances by Robert Ellis & Friends at the Mohawk, 912 Red River; Erika Wennerstrom at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St.; New Breed Brass Band at Antone’s, 305 E. 5th St., and more. Throughout the weekend, check out performances by Sunflower Bean, Archers of Loaf, El Tule, Leftover Salmon, The Suffers and more. Get the full line-up and schedule at the Hot Luck Fest website.

Chow down, get down. Recommended.
