Slight Change in Freakout Plans Tonight

Today is one of those best-laid-plans scenarios, apparently. If you scroll down a bit to play today’s Austin Music Minute, you’ll hear all about Big Bill‘s release show for Public Freakout Compilation, originally set for tonight at Hotel Vegas. Calliope Musicals and BÖNDBREAKR made it the perfect line-up.

Then, stupid COVID threw Big Bill a curveball, so the band wisely decided to bow out of tonight’s performance. And sadly, due to thwarted travel plans, BÖNDBREAKR also had to drop out of the party. However, Calliope Musicals declared the show must go on, so they’ll be playing at 11 p.m. tonight, preceded by Lady Chops & The Goddamn Jam kicking off the night at 10 p.m.

Here’s a game plan: Click on these band links and support these bands, including getting your copy of Big Bill’s Public Freakout Compilation, and check out tonight’s show.
