Le Tour, Part Deux

By: Laurie Gallardo

Austin-based rock-pop outfit King Warbler is headed back on the road to resume a busy spring tour schedule, but of course, this calls for a grand send-off. Don’t miss their tour kickoff show tonight at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St., with one hell of a must-see bill of Austin Music Minute faves – the heart-fluttery badass magic and whimsy of Batty Jr.; the magnificent Benjamin Violet‘s renegade country brigade Pelvis Wrestley; and the exquisite vocal stylings of Van Mary.

And it’s the spot where the Austin Blues Society Gathering […]
