Austin Music Minute

The celebration of Austin-based artists continues with #LoveAustinMusicMonth. KUTX is front and center with extra love for local artists across the board.

The bill mentioned on today’s Austin Music Minute is something special because it brings together different generations – classic Austin with a couple of badass music veterans, and a rising star in the local scene. They all share the line up tonight at The Continental Club, 1315 S. Congress Ave. It’s a cross section of what makes our fair city pretty damn cool:

-Not for the faint of heart, or easily-wounded egos. Which is exactly how it should be, damn it. He’s been called a poet, a razor-sharp master of sociopolitical commentary, acerbic, brave, and on fire. James McMurtry tells it like it is, and shows no mercy. Again…as it should be.

-Three-time Austin Music Hall of Fame inductee, former True Believers band member alongside Alejandro Escovedo, as well as a member of Austin’s first punk band The Skunks, a survivor, and all-around fantastic songwriter, Jon Dee Graham aims straight from the heart.

-His first gig was at the age of six at the Austin Music Awards. His debut release Foreign Fields (2015), recorded with his band The Painted Redstarts, scintillates with a breathy, dream-pop/rock-out aesthetic. William Harries Graham‘s new album JAKES comes out Feb.22.

Doors open at 9 p.m., and the music kicks off at 9:45 p.m. So recommended.
