Pink Chalk

By: Laurie Gallardo

Do what you will, but consider this protip from your Austin Music Minute: Make time to check out a lot of the great shows happening before the chaos of SXSW ensues. Naturally, that includes some awesome upcoming shows with Austin bands. It may seem obvious, but you’ll thank the AMM later…

Here’s one for you: Songwriter Chris Simpson, known for his ’90s-era indie band Mineral, (eagerly awaiting the arrival of the One Day When We Are Young book by Mischa Pearlman) is now sharing his latest work as Mountain Time, the moniker of his project since previously recording as Zookeeper. Don’t miss Mountain Time tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River, along with another AMM favorite, The Naked Tungs, and Massachusetts surfer blues outfit Calico Blue.

The music starts at 9 p.m. So recommended.
