Love and Lightstream

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s heartbreaking. It’s frustrating. And somehow, the live music needs to keep going, whether it’s through livestreams or socially-distanced shows in huge outdoor spaces. It’s…not quite the same, and most of us look forward to going to shows again, but it’ll work for now. Here’s an event that features both.

Love and Lightstream Drive-In Concert presents three days of live music by ATX artists, drive-in style for safe social distancing, organized to benefit the Austin music community. You can catch the line-ups in your car at the Haute Spot in Cedar Park or via the Love and Lightstream website starting at 6 p.m. (Central) each night, Thursday August 27 through Saturday August 29. Proceeds from ticket sales to the drive-in shows and livestream access benefit the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM) and Black Fret.

Your nightly line-ups:

ThursdayDavid Ramirez 9 p.m., Jonathan Terrell 8 p.m., Jaimee Harris 7 p.m., Indian & The Jones 6 p.m.

FridaySir Woman 9 p.m., Jackie Venson 8 p.m., The Bishops 7 p.m., Heart of the City 6 p.m.

Saturday…And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead 9 p.m.,  Quiet Company 8 p.m.,  Swimming With Bears 7 p.m., Think No Think (featured on today’s AMM) 6 p.m.

Love and Lightstream also provides a page with links to band merch. Use it. Support the bands. Thank you.

What’s Yr Damage

Following the breakup of their previous psych-gaze band Creepoid, Anna and Patrick Troxell forged an electro post-punk dynamic as the duo Lovelorn. And now the ATX-by-way-of Philly outfit is ramping things up with two new additions to the line-up, guitarists Steve Pike and Kyle Harris. No doubt extra shreds will add even more discordant dimensions […]
