My Heart Would Know

By: Laurie Gallardo

Please allow your Austin Music Minute maven to reminisce a bit. Back in the day, some of the really cool kids were passing along copies of Lucinda Williams‘ self titled 1988 release to your AMM host (pre-KUT/KUTX days, obviously), saying, “This one. This has your name all over it, woman.” And to summarize, “Am I Too Blue” and “The Night’s Too Long” were two tracks that got…real personal very quickly. As in, where have you been all my life, Lucinda?

But interestingly, that was not the album that leapt out on the radar, as badass as it is. It was one ten years later that led more new fans to Williams’ songwriting greatness: Car Wheels On A Gravel Road. For many, this was the launch, and eventually the touchstone, putting the idea of “Americana” into the collective consciousness before Americana even had a name.

Tonight is a special night. Lucinda Williams and her band Buick 6 perform at ACL Live at The Moody Theater, 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. It’s a celebration of Car Wheels you’ll want to be a part of. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the music starts at 8 p.m.

Very recommended.

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 […]
