This is where the fire’s at. Wednesday night’s bill at C-Boy’s Heart and Soul presents a big part of your summertime soundtrack:

  • Born in Miami, raised in Columbia, and bringing it all to Austin, Kiko Villamizar has cumbia in his blood and psych in his soul. Soak it all up when you spin Villamizar’s third LP Todo El Mundo, and make sure you revisit his excellent My KUTX playlist from earlier this year. Damn…
  • Welcome to the slow burner that roars. Scorching blues rock with a twist of acid rock fuels the modus operandi of killer trio JéTexas. Make it heavy, man.

Villamizar goes on at 10 p.m., followed by JéTexas at 11:30 p.m. this Wednesday, June 22 at C-Boy’s, 2008 S. Congress Ave.

Shooks Up

It’s all in the family. But if you ask, Marlon Sexton will tell you he got his love of music from both parents, though most folks are inclined to remember his father. It’s cool either way. Mom had tons of CDs that Sexton listened to when he was a kid, and dad’s life is pretty […]

A San Padre Trip

You never know what’s boiling beneath the surface. On A. Sinclair‘s fifth studio LP San Padre, start with“Lean Into It,” the intense opener pairing songwriter/vocalist Aaron Sinclair with Sean Murphy that lures you in with an eerily soft build, compelling one to…well, lean into it. And lean closer. But mind the headphones. The acoustic traversing […]

That was followed by […]
