Hole In My Heart

By: Laurie Gallardo

Your Austin Music Minute maven didn’t mince words when describing the Hole In the Wall on today’s AMM.

That weathered and worn building at 2538 Guadalupe is not just a favorite happy hour spot. It’s a touchstone – historic, iconic, a symbol, and a survivor. Think of any big names associated with the Austin music scene, and chances are, they’ve played some of their very first gigs there. Genuine badasses mingling with up-and-comers building their chops…that connection is a huge part of what it’s about.

This month, the much-beloved dive celebrates its 45th year in the ATX with a weeklong, gigantic birthday celebration, filled with all manner of bands, starting tonight. This evening’s show includes sets by PR Newman, Mike & The Moonpies (featured on today’s AMM), Mayeux & Broussard, and John Evans. The music kicks off at 8 p.m.

Make sure to check the HITW calendar for this week’s birthday schedule. So many awesome bands that your head will explode.
