Smell it! It’s in the air! All that delicious live music! (See what I did there?)

Along with a dazzling array of culinary delights presented by world-class chefs at tastings at Franklin Barbecue, Fair Market and Wild Onion Ranch, Hot Luck Fest 2023 is also bringing the live music with line-ups featuring local and touring artists at four Austin venues.

Tonight’s shows include Shinyribs at Mohawk, Cortége at High Noon, Thin Lizzy cover band Think Lizzy and Queen tribute band Magnifico at The Coral Snake (formerly Stay Gold/Long Play East), and noise rockers Venus Twins at Hotel Vegas. Tomorrow, catch Detroit garage rock trio The Gories with Austin hoodlums Riverboat Gamblers at Mohawk, Superfónicos at Hotel Vegas (featured on today’s AMM), and The Oxys at The Coral Snake.

More AMM Hot Luck picks coming your way tomorrow. Check Hot Luck’s website for ticket info.
