Love at the Cactus

By: Laurie Gallardo

Austin songwriter and longtime Austin Music Minute fave David Ramirez gets the #LoveAustinMusicMonth spotlight on today’s AMM, and with good reason. Some busy music-filled nights are ahead for Ramirez at the Cactus Café, 2247 Guadalupe in the Texas Union building. Check this out: Ramirez will perform his entire catalog of work, each song off every record and EP he’s recorded, over the next four nights at the Cactus, beginning tonight. Dang!

For you hardcore fans, here’s the schedule Ramirez recently posted to his Facebook page:

American Soil and Strangetown tonight, with Carson McHone (fresh from her London tour, hello?!) opening the show.

Apologies and The Rooster tomorrow night, with Thomas Csorba opening.

FABLES on Friday night, with Matt McCloskey opening.

We’re Not Going Anywhere on Saturday night, with Jason Robert Blum opening.

Doors at 8 p.m., and music at 8:30 p.m. each night. Soak it all in, and raise a glass to Ramirez. Very recommended.
